“Tasks Galore – Let’s Play” utilizes play as the program for learning. There is more and more evidence that direct teaching of play skills can increase young children’s symbolic understanding and, thus, have an impact on their imitation, language and social skills.
Beautiful color photographs of children at play depict tasks that the authors have implemented successfully to enhance their students toy play, flexibility, and social interactions. Printable visual supports that will generalize multiple learning resources are also included.
Chapters demonstrate how routines, organizational strategies and visual clues make play more understandable, so students can:
- Share enjoyment
- Use toys appropriately
- Manage play times
- Make and end choices
- Pretend, and
- Play with peers
Excellent for parents, teachers and therapists.
