When a Child Does Not Play, 6th Edition


When a Child Does Not Play: The Essential ‘Why and How’ Manual to Develop the Play of Children (Age 4-6+)

When a child does not play – here is a 10-section e-manual of “Playwork” activities and skills to do together. Appropriate for caretakers of children 4-6, and much older when a child is developmentally delayed and continues to not play.

As with most activities, play has its own set of rules. When parents, professionals and other caretakers learn to work with these rules, many children who do not play can learn to play. The aim of this manual is to make explicit the purpose and benefits of play and how caretakers can use the 10 “playwork” goals, sequentially, for the development of a child’s play.
