Play is an important measure of children’s development, as it encompasses emotional, social, cognitive and language aspects. It develops in layers of complexity over time, influencing all aspects of child development. This workshop is provided in two modules: Assessment Module - the assessment module will focus on clinician’s being able to observe a child’s play; and understand and interpret this information within the child’s family, social and cultural systems. Intervention Module - this module will provide participants with a clinical reasoning framework for the inclusion of play in therapy sessions; as well as skills/strategies to design and implement intervention programs that will develop children’s pretend play skills.

Target Audience: Occupational Therapists

It directly influences a child’s occupational performance in self-care, academic and social participation. Increasingly, occupational therapists are asked to provide an understanding of challenges to self-regulation experienced by children and offer suggestions for strategies which may enhance their participation across the tasks they want and need to do.
