Play with Purpose LLC will soon be offering five Play Programs as part of its communication curriculum and a How To program for parents, teachers, and caregivers. While each one can be used independently, the five programs are meant to work together to help build vocabulary, object awareness, speech, comprehension, social skills and relational understanding. The programs enhance your child’s communication with others.
If you’d like to be notified when the programs are available, please contact us!
Here are the Play Programs:
What’s in the Bag?
A visual, object-oriented exercise that engages a child’s natural curiosity and helps them to focus on everyday objects. One of those objects will further expand on sensory concepts of light, sound, texture, or movement.
The video clip shows a brief introduction to how the What’s in the Bag program works, using common food items.
See It – Shape it – Say it
An oral-motor exercise that helps your child to form words and teaches simple sign language for basic words.
Look! It’s in a Book!
Uses visual language to connect learned objects to photographs, illustrations, and words in books.
The video clip shows a brief introduction to the Look! It’s in a Book! program, following on the theme of food that appeared in the What’s in the Bag? program.
Uses short video clips – also known as video modeling – to teach children how to use objects and play with them, helping children to interact and develop social skills.
This video clip blends the suspense-building activity of What’s in the Bag? with the Let’s Play! video-modeling program to show children how to play with everyday objects.
Where in the World?
A video tool that reinforces simple words and actions in real-life environments, to build awareness and relational understanding that helps your child to anticipate and adapt to new situations.
The video clip shows an example of the Where in the World? program, which brings all the objects from the various Play with Purpose programs into a real-life environment. Sights and sounds from the real-life environment remain intact in the video, so that when a child goes to a similar place, it will be familiar (in short, no editing is done on these videos).
