ABA + circle time
Friday, May 13, 2022
ABA + circle time in the classroom is so much more than hearing a story. We work on skills such as following directions from a teacher, tolerating sitting in a group with peers, hand raising, listening skills, imitating peers and turn taking just to name a few!

What’s it like to intern at CP+?
Friday, May 6, 2022
Thank you, Kennedy, for your kind words and spending the time to play, learn and grow with us during your clinical internship experience!
“They say time flies when you’re having fun, and my time at Child’s Play Plus has flown by. I’ve had multiple opportunities to gain professional experience as a psychology student at PFW, but my internship at the clinic was my favorite thus far. You have an amazing group of staff and kiddos, and I enjoyed every hour I spent with them. You all are doing amazing things for our community.
Thank you again for allowing students like myself to enter your clinic and learn more about ABA therapy. Coming out of this experience, I feel I have a better sense of the variety of ways ASD is displayed in individual patients and I’ve become more familiar with the range of treatment options available to them. I’m so thankful to have met you and your team, as you’ve taught me many valuable lessons over the course of the semester.”
