***Play Is Essential Series: Autism Inclusiveness***
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
All human development emerges from the interactions among playing, making, and knowing. Too often adults try to direct the play activities of young people. At San Francisco State University they are developing and studying “Integrated Play Groups” that foster the integration of autistic children with their peers in child-directed play activities. All children benefit from play that is self-directed and not determined by adults and this example demonstrates the importance of this to children on the autism spectrum as well.
