Dr. Pamela Wolfberg is a professor at the San Francisco State University in Autism Spectrum Studies.

She has done amazing work for social inclusion for kids on the Autism spectrum with Integrated Play Groups.

Many parents want to help their kids feel socially included in school and in the community. This week’s episode features Dr. Pamela Wolfberg’s work to help children play together.

She got the idea to start the Integrated Play Groups model in her sleep.

Pamela and her research partners took the Integrated Play Groups into many schools and communities and formed the Autism Institute on Peer Socialization and Play – a collective of independent professionals to foster the human right for kids with autism to be socially included in the culture of play with peers.

Learn more about Pamela’s journey to start the Integrated Play Groups, her inspiration, and the lessons she’s learned along the way.
