Trainings and Professional Development

Actionplay offers training and professional development for education, arts, and culture professionals to develop compassionate and sensory aware experiences for people with autism and related conditions.

Actionplay also offers practical design ideas, information, and implementation of sensory-friendly environments promoting inclusion of people on the autism spectrum and related conditions. Through consultations with autistic self-advocates, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists, and Educators trained in Actionplay’s ACT Training model, Actionplay can help to transform your space into a sensory-friendly environment.

Check out the Sensory Room at Brooklyn Children’s Museum for an example of what we can do!
