Autism and Play course in Cambridge, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October

James Hammond

NACHP Clinical Psychotherapist David Moat and Emma Moat, Play Therapist and Counsellor are running a course entitled Autism and Play at Abington Barn in Cambridge later this year.

It is widely accepted that social development is strongly influenced through play. As children move through the various stages of play, they are acquiring a vast range of skills for effective interaction and connection. It is this ‘connection’ that can prove so difficult for children with autism to achieve.

Emma has many years’ experience in running training courses and workshops on many aspects of child (and adult) counselling and play therapy/creative arts counselling.

David has been a Member of NACHP for a number of years and has over 30 years direct experience of working with people on the autism spectrum.

This course aims to equip delegates with ideas for using play activities for children with autism, with a view to enabling effective social development.

The course fee is £150 and includes a delicious home-made lunch and there is local accommodation available.
