Play for Real closed on Friday September 23 for ICDL Conference

As we announced earlier, the ICDL Conference is at Gaylord Palms Resort and Conference Center in Orlando this year. Play for Real Therapy Services will be closed this coming Friday and Saturday, September 23 & 24, as we will be attending the conference. This event is a great opportunity for both professionals and parents/caregivers to come and hear experts in the field presenting on all aspects of DIRFloortime. It is the first time that ICDL is holding the annual conference in Florida and there is an impressive lineup of presenters.

The opening keynote speaker is Steve Silberman, the author of “NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity”. In this award-winning book, Steve gives an insightful and sensitive history of autism, and it will be a wonderful opportunity to hear him speak at the conference.
