I've met Dr. Richard Solomon and heard a lecture/power point of his. G.T., the little boy that I have been doing respite care for the past two years, was a part of PLAY project. Unfortunately, his family couldn't afford to continue, but he was making great improvements while they were involved. The play workers (for want of a better name) came out to the house and the session was taped. Dr. Solomon narrated a cassette that was timed to play with the tape, giving suggestions and making comments on his development. It was all very interestesting. In my opinion definetley worth attending his seminar.
