Summary
This online video describes the importance of play in children's development and acquisition of new skills (i.e., language, social skills, appropriate behaviors, fine and gross motor skills, and self-regulation). Many children with autism do not acquire play skills. However, the video discusses how behavioral interventions have been effective in teaching age-appropriate play skills and leisure skills.

ACI Learning Centers provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services for children with autism, family members, and professionals in the United States. ACI also provides an online learning library, glossary, and links to other autism resources for free.
