Play - What Is Play?, The Importance Of Play, Elements Of Children's Play, Social Elements Of Play

development game

All children play. From the infant squealing in delight during a game of peek-a-boo to the older child playing a game of basketball, children of all ages play and they play in all kinds of ways.

Play is recognized as an important part of a child's development. In fact, it is an important topic of study in many different disciplines. In the field of early childhood special education, play is valuable in assessing a child's level of development and in providing intervention. In psychology, therapists often watch children play to gain an understanding of children's problems and to help them deal with their emotions. The universal nature of play can also provide professionals working with children a basis for comparing typical and atypical development and behavior.

Just wanted to thank you for this publication :)

Was very helpful for my research, as am doing a report on the importance of play!



Just for the others- there is many other publications online which are very helpful! Feel free to email me if you need to know anything in particular and ill do my best to help.



I found 'cognotive elements of play' the most helpful; particularly with the statement:

In sensorimotor play, children engage in motor movements beginning with early reflexes and moving toward more intentional actions.

These early actions are initially the result of trial and error; children learn through their actions that their behavior has an effect on the environment



Thanks again :-)

I am studying for an upper level university course and find that this article was helpful and succinct. Since I do not have text book for this course and am a returning mature student, this article has helped to define play and as a teacher and mother, fulsh out my own ideas of 'play' as well. Thanks so much.
