Abstract

Children have played through the ages. Modern theories of play view children`s play as a means for mastering traumatic experiences, for practicing and consolidating learned skills, for promoting abstract thought, problem solving and fl exibility in thinking and for promoting the ability to comprehend multiple levels of meaning. The study of play in infants and children with disabilities has become an increasingly popular area of investigation especially as play relates to later competence in social and academic skills.
