Topic: Enhancing Your Child's Skills Through Connection-Based Play

Meet the Expert: Laurie Chaikind, MSW, LGSW, Kennedy Krieger Institute

Description: This session will provide parents and their children the opportunity to connect through play. The benefits and how-to's of playtime will be the focus of this event, with an emphasis on developing critical bonds between caregiver and child. Research shows that this connection has a direct impact on a child's ability to follow directions, expands their attention span, enhances their brain development, promotes self-regulation and calming and increases self-esteem. Laurie will share the science behind connection-based play and practice engaging little ones in play scenarios!
