CARD is excited to launch Camp Discovery: Objects, an all-new game app that allows young children the opportunity to learn and explore objects that are commonly found in the home and community.
If crafting isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there isn’t much work involved. The end result is a wonderful inexpensive alternative to commercial magnetic calendars. To download the template, visit the Autism Live facebook page. Once you have the template, print, cut and paste! Want to make it even faster? You can print directly to a printable magnet sheet, like these from Avery. Mount your calendar on the fridge or put it on a metal cookie pan for a mobile calendar.
Playing is learning. With constructive play, a child learns how to imitate others, and to use their imagination to generate structures. With functional pretend play, the child is givenan opportunity to practice using items appropriately and to work on his conversation skills by having him narrate his actions.
The first thing I’ll say is that it takes more than just a degree to be a CARD therapist. The qualities required of a successful clinician involve more than what can be summed up under education and experience on a resume.
