The Identiplay intervention helps children on the autistic spectrum, and those with specific communication needs, learn to play. Through the use of play scripts, the approach promotes the development of social skills, understanding, imagination and exploration. By learning these skills, the young person can enjoy reciprocal play with an adult or peer.
Identiplay develops fundamental communication and attention skills, laying the foundation for students being able to receive and respond to stories, rhymes and poems. It also lays the groundwork for early speaking and listening.
