Meet Richard Solomon, MD, the founder of The PLAY™ Project (Play and Language for Autistic Youngsters) and the Medical Director at The Ann Arbor Center for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. Rick has nearly 20 years experience working with thousands of children with Autism spectrum disorders as a developmental and behavioral pediatrician. He’s also committed to sharing his successful techniques with other practitioners; through the PLAY Project he has trained more than 500 pediatric professionals from 30 US States and 7 countries.
The conference title is “Connecting the Dots: How Research is Guiding the Treatment of Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Executive Functioning” and Dr. Solomon will discuss his parent/practitioner training programs and how play-based interventions can benefit children with Autism.
As a reminder, the dates for the NPDDF will be October 22-24, 2015 and the event will be held at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
