Child assembling building blocks

Across the lifespan, play serves a pivotal role in our development and learning. And while for the most part development unfolds in a predictable and logical set of stages and sequences, there is much we can do through play to ensure happier and healthier children. This webinar provides a context for seeing the power of play and how it is necessary for success in school and in life. Recommended practices and research on how to support children’s play are provided.

Continuing Education (CE) Credit

**Update**

Due to COVID-19, the ability to access face-to-face professional development has become very limited.  Thus the Early Intervention Training Program (EITP) has agreed to offer CE credit for this archived MFLN Early Intervention webinar for ILLINOIS providers through Dec. 31, 2020.  Individuals seeking CE credit to be used towards other state or agency credentials should contact their credentialing/licensing agency for guidance.
