Let’s Play! Tips for Increasing Engagement and Rapport with Younger Clients

Let’s Play! All BCBAs know that the ability to successfully Play and engage with the clients we serve is often easier said than done, especially when it comes to teaching Play to others.  Join us in this interactive discussion regarding all things “Play!” Our goal is to ensure that every BCBA leaves this CEU with not only a better understanding of how Play effects treatment planning and client progress, but also with their own personal toolbox for engaging in and teaching Play in a confident and effective way for all.  Let’s have some fun!
