Teleplay What is it?

Tele-PLAY occurs when a certified PLAY Project consultant uses a secure, non-public facing video conference platform to help caregivers implement The PLAY Project approach in their natural environment within daily routines.

What does a typical Tele-PLAY visit look like?

Your certified PLAY Project consultant will schedule the virtual meeting by sending a link to your email or a text to your phone so you can log on at the appointed time to your computer, tablet, or smart phone.

During a Tele-PLAY visit, the PLAY Project consultant will do the following:

  1. Listen to your concerns and your priorities in regards to your child’s development

  2. Help you to better understand your child’s unique sensory and developmental profile based on video analysis and parent checklists/questionnaires.

  3. Introduce you to the research-based PLAY Project methods, principles, and techniques

  4. Guide you towards which PLAY Project techniques to utilize in everyday routines and interactions based on your child’s interests and unique profile.

  5. Collaborate with you on how to incorporate your child’s own toys, common household objects, other caregivers, and siblings into natural play and daily routines with the focus on achieving the goals that you have for your child’s development

  6. Value your role as your child’s primary caregiver and provide you with the support and information you need to enhance your feeling of confidence as you foster your child’s learning and development using The PLAY Project approach.

What is needed for visits to take place?

  1. A computer, tablet, or smart phone with access to internet or data

  2. An adult or older child who can be present to help with moving the camera when needed as caregiver actively plays with a child during the visit.

  3. The ability to record and share short video clips of child taken at home to share with consultant for the purpose of video analysis.
