Toys Help: A Guide to Choosing Toys for Handicapped Children.
Jeffrey, Gary H.; And Others
The portfolio contains five guides to aid in choosing toys and other resources on toys and toy lending for health care settings. The first guide is about why toys help, reasons, a model, and some ways toys can be used. The second guide covers criteria for choosing toys. The third, not included, is a chart of selected toys as they can be used to develop 10 specific skill areas. The organization, including cataloging and principles of circulating, of a toy library are examined in the fourth guide. The final guide is about special toys for the handicapped child and emphasizes the desirability of adapting normal toys for use by the handicapped child. (DB)
