AutPlay Therapy has proven to be a successful approach to improving the lives of families navigating autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Here are some endorsements from professionals and parents.

After attending an AutPlay® Therapy Training, AutPlay® quickly became a resourceful go to guide for my play therapy sessions with neurotypical and autism spectrum children and adults alike. It is practical and easy to learn. Ingeniously, it encourages immediate family involvement via parental guidebook of similar exercises done at home with children for greater developmental impact. The simplicity and practicality of the therapy cultivates growth and self-development of the clients involved.

Dr. Grant has done an extraordinary job of pulling together the effective brain based research to develop play based interventions. The dimension of teaching caregivers how to utilize AutPlay® creates a proactive approach and a whole family approach to improving the function and mastery of these wonderful clients.
