Assessment and Treatment of Play
Play is one of the primary occupations in which people engage (AOTA, 2014). In typical human development, play begins early in life, spontaneously and seemingly with ease, eventually taking up many hours of childhood. Occupational therapists have long held the view that play is important, deserves serious study, and is an aspect of childhood that provides quality of life and meaning (Bundy,1993; Parham, 1996).
