Challenges conventional notions of and approaches to the role of play in occupational therapy for children. Play theories and assessments imported from other disciplines are presented alongside those that have resulted from research conducted by occupational therapists and scientists. Covers an historical and conceptual backdrop on pediatric occupational therapy, specific assessment instruments and discussions on how to incorporate a family centered, narrative approach into the assessment process, play as a means for enhancing development and skill acquisition, and play as a goal of intervention.
