Play as a Tool of Early Intervention (Birth-8 Years)

Young children play to express feelings, gain mastery over materials, and find meaning in complex experiences. When an emotional crisis interferes, with a young child's development, play becomes an essential therapeutic tool as well as a diagnostic indicator. This course will utilize current theoretical perspectives to gain insight into children's play. You will work with these theories to develop play techniques to use in early childhood classrooms and in individual therapy sessions. A basic understanding of early childhood development is required.

This class will meet on campus. Proof of Covid-19 vaccination and bivalent booster shot, or documented exemption, are required. KN95 or surgical masks may be required indoors at Bank Street College.
