Play is the language of young children. It is their spontaneous and powerful, but often coded, medium of expression. Adverse childhood experiences hold the potential to derail development in course and quality, including play. In this free, online, two-part presentation, we will examine typical play and the manner in which early childhood trauma exposure may impact play.
