Due to excessively strict NDA of the organization, I am very limited in what I can post, but letting those following the RPG Research, beginning working with autism-spectrum toddlers today from a recreation therapy approach, and developing an activity program that is LARP (Live-Action Role-Playing) quest-style for this population group, that we will actually implement in the next few weeks.

UPDATE: This program is based on work at Eastern Washington University with oversight by Professor Emily Messina and others. It has been repeated with similar success when used other groups in private practice through non-profit RPG Research and the for-profit RPG Therapeutics LLC since. If you implement this, or similar programs, please comment and/or add your posts to the website, so that everyone can benefit from the centralized information pool.

Creating a TON of documentation for this process. Hopefully I can get permission down the road to discuss in much more detail.

After it is over, hopefully I can release a "sanitized" version of the LARP portion of the detailed documentation of the program to the public (not the organization's program, but the program that I, and 2 others collaborated to create as part of our class project in Recreation Therapy Program Planning).

I am really excited to finally be testing application of some of the hypotheses I've been talking about for years to a real-life group. :-)
