Global Outreach

Integrated Play Groups-Global Outreach!

We are actively engaged in global outreach as human rights advocates to afford individuals with autism equal access to social inclusion in play, recreation and cultural experiences. Given the universal nature of play, the IPG model’s principles and practices have been embraced by many cultures and naturally adopted by communities around the world. Efforts to date have included supporting families and professionals through educational exchange and collaboration with government and NGO/non-profit agencies at the local, national and international level.
