Keynote Presenter - Lisa Fyffe

Lisa Fyffe is an Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy at Colorado State University.  She has a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy.  Lisa has extensive experience in pediatrics, working in both primary and secondary education, outpatient pediatric therapy, in-home private pediatric practice and in a Level IIIA Neonate Intensive Care Unit.  Her current practice and research interests center on the role of play-based learning in facilitating school readiness and the value of universal access to occupational therapy within early childhood education.  Lisa supervises the occupational therapy program at the Colorado State University Early Childhood Center, a Reggio-Emilia inspired, play-based school serving children ages six weeks to six years of age.

Lisa's keynote is titled Play-Based Learning as an Inclusive Approach to Early Childhood Education.  The presentation centers on how play-based learning is an inclusive approach to early childhood education and describes how play facilitates children's learning by fostering their cognitive, social, and language development.  Participants will explore how play provides children with developmentally appropriate exposure to the foundational thinking tools of learning and methods of inquiry within academic subjects.
