As children we all enjoyed play. Through play essential communication skills, social skills, emotional skills, problem solving abilities, and interpersonal skills all begin to develop. Many children will learn these skills and behaviors from adults, which is why it is important that parents begin playing with their child at an early age. Unfortunately, children with special needs sometimes have limited opportunity for play because of behavioral or medical issues.

This is concerning given the importance of play in the development of children. At the California Learning Connection, we provide services that can assist you and your child. We provide effective interventions that allow your child to get ahead, while doing what they love…play! Your children may benefit greatly from one of our many Speech and Language Services, Occupational Therapy, and/or our Academic Enrichment Programs.
