As Coronavirus cases surge across the country several area school districts have been flipping from the books to virtual learning. The back and forth has been overwhelming for parents trying to juggle remote learning while keeping up with their work and it can be especially challenging for parents of a young child with an autism spectrum disorder or ASD.

On Thursday, Dr. Rick Solomon, medical director with The Play Project joined 44News This Morning to provide some insight on how parents can use time at home to engage with their child in a playful way that improves their social development. Dr. Solomon introduced us to the early-intervention program for families with children who have ASD. Dr. Solomon also explained how The Play Project can help families throughout this trying time.

During the month of November parents can sign-up for a free online welcome course. The tool is especially helpful now as virtual learning has become the new norm. If you would like to sign up for the free course through The Play Project click here.
