Playing to Learn, Learning to Play with Make it Yourself AT


September 16, 2015, Online


According to Fred (Mr.) Rogers, “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” Play includes exploration using all of our senses, examining how toys and materials work, discovering new ways to use materials, and more.  Adaptations to attach, stabilize, make the toy easier to hold, or confine the toy can be made with readily found materials. Removing barriers and providing access for children who have differing abilities and challenges can expand their play opportunities. So, let’s play!
