Sugar Aunts: The Ultimate Guide to Play

The Ultimate Guide to Play

Play is work of the child.  Through play, a child learns about the world around him.  He learns communication skills, problem solving, builds fine and gross motor development, enhances social interactions, and develops the skills needed for independence in all aspects of growth.  

This month in the Functional Skills for Kids series, myself and nine other Occupational and Physical Therapists have teamed up to share everything play. This is an ultimate guide to development, progression of skills, environmental aspects, modification of play, and how play is used as a therapeutic tool.  

You can see previous Functional Skills for Kids series here.
