Play with me

Ellie has taken to inviting Helen into her play world, which kids on the spectrum don't usually do. It doesn't come intuitively to them. I spent over a year in play therapy with her, and she still participates in a playgroup on Saturdays that works on both play skills and functional speech skills. Here the girls are doing the Flora-Fauna-Merryweather trifecta from Sleeping Beauty. Ellie has finally learned to use toy props to create pretend play, and she's good at it. I know her brain struggled with this skill, but boy, she sure mastered it. Go, go, fairy girl.
