Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) now occurs in about 1 in 110 children in BC and is the fastest growing developmental disability. The ability for social play, interaction, and communication is one of the primary deficits of children with ASD. They are at risk of being rejected, alienated, and bullied within their community environment. Schools and families are searching for new and unique ways to support children with ASD and their peers. This project will provide much needed capacity within BC communities to improve the well being of children with ASD and have a long term impact on their development. We will work in partnership with community implementation teams made up of of local professionals and parents to provide the materials and the necessary skills for them to support the implementation of a new, innovative program called, "Can I Play Too?", in their schools and other community settings. The project will support and improve the quality of life for young children aged 3 to 12 with autism, their families and their typically developing peers both individually and as a whole.
