Play diagnosis and assessment( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato once observed that you can learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. Nowhere is the truth of this aphorism more in evidence than in the case of children. It is through play- the chief occupation of the child- that children begin to make sense of the world around them. Through play they develop motor and cognitive skills, work out difficult emotional puzzles, and begin the arduous process of socialization. Offering an impressive array of papers by nearly fifty authorities in the field, this book is divided into six parts, covering the full range of practical and theoretical concerns. Following a logical progression, it begins with a section covering developmental play scales for normal children, including infants and preschoolers, as well as older children. The second and largest section is devoted to diagnostic play scales. Included here are scales for the evaluation of children with a variety of cognitive, behavioral and/or emotional disorders.-- Book Jacket
