Eric and Wei Pettit are taking the idea of STEM learning to the next level by opening a business specifically for the practice.

On Feb. 1, the couple started a Noblesville franchise of Snapology, a mobile enrichment program that uses LEGO bricks and other toys to foster learning through playing. The Pettits recently became interested in Snapology, which launched 10 years ago in Pennsylvania, because of their children.

“We have a 3- and a 4-year-old, and this is exactly the class that I would want for them as a parent,” he said. “The children learn through fun hands-on activities that promote problem-solving, critical thinking and STEM concepts, all in a very social and positive environment. When I was a kid, we had LEGO bricks and our imagination, but now we have LEGO builds that move and a drone that flies. We have different types of input sensors and tablet computers to program the robot to do incredible things.”

Adaptive Play and its benefits for children with Autism

Nov 23, 2016

Adaptive Play began as an alternative to traditional structured curriculum for children with learning, behavioral, and/or physical challenges. Play is a great distractor tool for children because it allows them to have fun, express their feelings, and have self-actualization through toys. Adaptive Play allows children to participate in activities that target the development of cognitive, social and motor skills. Adaptive Play also encourages cause and effect planning skills, abstract thinking, and science and technology at the child’s pace. Although adaptive play is beneficial for all children, research has proven on countless occasions that it is particularly effective in children on the Autism spectrum. Autism is defined as developmental difficulties in social interactions, verbal and nonverbal communication, and brain development. As Autism prevalence grows, with one in 68 children on the spectrum, it is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the nation. Children with autism have a unique way of communicating and often lack socialization skills, and so adaptive play encourages interaction.
