School Newsletter 17 - Supporting Play for Children with Autism


Many of us work with children who are just beginning their communication journey. Through play, children learn to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, physical, cognitive, and emotional strengths (Ginsburg, 2007). However, for some of the children with whom we work, a little extra support may be needed during play activities. This articles discusses the tendency for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) to participate better in activities that are constructive in nature. Constructive Play will be explained and specific play activities discussed.
