Thank you to the TAIP members who were able to attend our AGM on Jan 21, 2021. We spent time looking back at 2020 and made some important decisions for 2021. We will send an email to members when we post the AGM Minutes in the member's section.
There are a few new faces on the Board of Directors, so please welcome them aboard!
We look forward to a great year of networking, publicity, and professional development!
TAIP Secretary and Principal of Komazawa Park International School, Merete Kropp, leads a discussion about play and play-based learning with ASIJ Early Learning Center Director, Christy Carrillo, and Ohana International School Assistant Director, John Adduru.
Our discussion this episode is about the role of play in the classroom. We discuss our definitions of play, and how we use play in our schools. How we handle rough or risky play. We also talk about the role of play in developing executive function, how we document play, and how we explain these topics with parents.
Sometimes it is difficult for adults to have faith that 0-3 aged children are active learners who customize their own curriculum according to their unique timetables of development and style of engagement.
This workshop is the workshop version of the content in her latest book: Lisa Murphy On... Being Child Centered.
After examining the importance of personal narrative and the difference between literacy and orality, Lisa teaches participants the story writing process that was initially taught to her by early childhood expert Bev Bos.
Lisa LOVES blocks, likes to play with blocks, likes to reflect on the history of blocks, likes to observe block play and really likes talking about how block play connects with all four domains of DAP.

We must regretfully announce the cancellation of the Autism Charity Conference originally scheduled for Saturday, February 22nd. A lot of time and effort went into this event and it was not an easy decision.
Unfortunately various details regarding the coronavirus outbreak and the logistics of the event has caused us to conclude that for reasons of safety and risk management, it is no longer possible to hold this event as planned.
We apologize and assure you that we would like to reschedule the event in the future. But given the current situation we cannot yet give an exact date.
We would like to thank Autism Partnership and K International School of Tokyo for all their support and efforts. A lot of people gave us a lot to try and make this event happen and we deeply appreciate these efforts.
Thank you for your understanding, and please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
