Importance of play for learning Parents are invited to attend the informative webinar \u201cPurposeful Play and Why It\u2019s Important for Learning\u201d on Wednesday, Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon on Zoom. Parents will learn the importance of play in children\u2019s development and how to play more intentionally with their children. Through play, children learn how to engage and interact successfully in the world around them. Play is, in fact, a critical vehicle through which children achieve healthy developmental milestones. In theory, playing with our children sounds like it should be easy: there are no rules; there is no script. But, in reality, the art of play can be overwhelming and confusing, especially when the children have not yet developed foundational people-, play, or group skills. In this session, Meghan Cave, BCBA, Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and co-founder of The Hangout Spot, Connecticut\u2019s first behavior analytic social skills development center, will outline actionable steps parents can follow to play along with their children, promoting social success and meaningful learning along the way. Co-sponsored by the Wilton Library, SPED*NET, the Special Education Network of Wilton, the Wilton Youth Council\u2019s Free Play Matters Task Force, and the Wilton Public School district.
