Taking Play seriously – relates to OT

My friend Arnie sent me this link, it is a NY Times Article called “Taking Play Seriously”

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/17/magazine/17play.html?ex=1203915600&en=6871f50fa00bce08&ei=5070&emc=eta1

A lot of people look at OTs working with children and say “Why are we paying for this?”. Well, for one thing, play is a major occupation for children, and it is almost always true that children learn about themselves and their environments through play. OTs are trained to assess the child in many different ways and to specifically tailor the play to challenge the child's abilities (the “just right” challenge).

Can y'all tell I'm cleaning out my e-mail box finally? LOL
