“We are honored to have received the award and grateful for this collaboration with HT2 Labs,” said Richard Solomon, MD, founder and medical director of The PLAY Project. “We have created a professional training that is helping thousands of children with autism and their families receive needed services. My hope is that this award raises awareness and contributes to our goal of increasing access to autism services around the world.”
The DevLearn conference, presented by The eLearning Guild, is the leading North American conference for the training technology profession. DemoFest serves as a showcase at the conference, where organizations submit projects that have been worked on during the previous year. Thousands of eLearning professionals review these demos and vote on the best in different categories.
The PLAY Project’s goal is to train PLAY Project Consultants at the highest level and to prepare them to provide PLAY Project Autism intervention for families with children affected by autism. This award is recognition of the quality of training that The PLAY Project provides to child development professionals.
This award contributes to the value of The PLAY Project Autism Intervention model which is already recognized for its effectiveness in helping children improve in their autism, while empowering parents.
