Play Day! Holzman to present at TedXNavesink



Lois Holzman will be a featured speaker at the upcoming TedX Navesink in Red Bank, N.J., May 10. It’s a day-long forum featuring several dozen presentations and entertainment dedicated to exploring the power and potential of PLAY!  

Here’s how Lois describes her talk which she calls,  Unveiling the Mystery of How Play Helps Us to Grow at Any Age:

Babies and toddlers play their way to growth. They learn how to talk, draw, dance, even think, through playing at what they’re not yet—performing it before they know it. It’s their way of life. Lucky for us non-babies, the mystery of exactly why and how play is developmental has been revealed and put to use with adults! Across the globe, from board rooms to therapy rooms, from hospital wards to refugee camps, ‘play revolutionaries’ are helping people and communities embrace play as a way to keep developing.

In 2012, Lois served as a Great Challenge Advocate at the TEDMED conference in Washington, D.C.  There, she helped organize conversation among delegates on the question: “How do we decide what is normal?”
