Although there are many benefits for children when they play, play can often be a powerful tool for adults of all ages. In this course, we will explore the incredible benefits derived from play, review research on the benefits, and practice techniques that have been proven to be beneficial for people of all ages, including those with cognitive impairment. The course will encourage hands-on activities that will be informative and fun! So come play with us and get insights into the Power and Magic of Play. Space is limited.
