Engaging children with a Dual Diagnosis (Intellectual Disability + behaviour or mental health diagnosis) in play and leisure activities may be challenging due to many factors including but not limited to communication, motor and/ or sensory deficits. This half day interactive session introduces concepts on what is developmentally appropriate, and provides insight into the challenges and strategies when working with this population. Participants will leave with practical strategies for how to promote play and leisure skills including how to structure “unstructured time” and increase quality and length of activities.
