Karen Stagnitti Australian author

Use the Learn to play Program with reproducible handouts for parents and caregivers to foster a child's ability to play independently. Researched and prepared by paediatric occupational therapist Karen Stagnitti, Learn to Play is a practical program designed to develop a child's imaginative play skills, which are so important to the development of language, social and cognitive (thinking) skills.

Occupational therapists, speech pathologists, special education teachers, pre-school fieldwork officers and early childhood workers can use Learn to Play. The book is a valuable resource of reproducible play activities for parents, carers and teachers of young children from birth to six years with developmental delays, autistic spectrum disorders and language disorders. Learn to play would also be useful for those working with children with visual impairment. Karen Stagnitti has worked in many areas of occupational therapy, and has a special interest in play development after reading extensively about children's imagination. She has lectured on the subject throughout Australia.

Includes imaginative play checklist and parent checklist.
