Play and grow together

PlayAble provides a platform to strengthen family and child engagement.

The program

PlayAble is an innovative play-based intervention program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder aged 2 to 5. It uses the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) as the intervention framework. The ESDM framework “seeks to empower children with Autism to become active participants in the world, initiating interactions with other people.” (ESDM Manual, xi).

The 'therapy' in PlayAble

PlayAble’s ‘play’ component replicates a playgroup. It is delivered by a trained Playgroup Queensland therapist and provides activities suitable for children with a range of diverse needs.
