PEORIA — The PLAY Project is an evidence based approach which is used to improve the symptoms of autism. The principles, methods, and techniques of the PLAY Project emphasize following the child’s lead as a means for improving social impairment, a core deficit of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

 "The PLAY Project focuses on 6 functional developmental levels. Participants will learn about the 6 developmental levels, observe and discuss case study demonstration of those levels, and understand the importance of engaging a child at his/her current level of development. This training will be helpful for parents, teachers, and other professionals who work with children on the autism spectrum,” states Jennifer Simpson, Rehabilitation Coordinator at Easterseals Central Illinois.
