Play a Little, Learn a Lot

'Play a little, learn a lot' are a collection of play session videos aimed at children with SEN (special educational needs) but they can also be shared and enjoyed by preschool children of any age. As well as sharing the videos with your children they act as a guide to parents/carer's to give ideas for simple play sessions, using simple language, supported by simple signing and visuals (symbols) to help promote language and communication and shared play. Symbols can be replaced by photos or objects depending on the child's level of understanding. Most importantly these play sessions should be fun.
