The mission of the Autism Institute on Peer Socialization and Play is to advance the rights of individuals on the autism spectrum to derive the joy and benefits of social inclusion in play, recreation and cultural experiences.

Our focus is on training, research and global outreach efforts to establish peer socialization programs following the Integrated Play Groups® (IPG) model (originated by Pamela Wolfberg, PhD). IPG aims to maximize the developmental potential and intrinsic motivation of children with autism to engage with typical peers in mutually enjoyed play experiences. Extensions of the IPG model include drama, visual arts, filmmaking, physical movement and other culturally valued activities that are of high interest for various age groups.

Based on award-winning research, the IPG model has shown benefits for children with autism and typical peers representing diverse ages, abilities, socioeconomic groups, languages and cultures.

IPG Providers include a collective of highly qualified professionals who are devoted to crafting specialized programs for children with families to enhance full participation in social, cultural and quality of life experiences.
