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, the disturbance manifests itself in the child's play. If early intervention is required to promote healthy 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 course meets online Eastern Time.
