A Priceless Playground for Exceptional Children.
Adkins, Patricia G.
Described are 20 pieces of therapeutic playground equipment constructed by volunteers and fathers of children in the Early Learning Center for Exceptional Children (El Paso, Texas). It is noted that discarded and readily available materials (such as old tires) were used, and that no commercial playground equipment was purchased. Information on the construction of each piece and its contribution to perceptual and motor development is presented along with illustrations. (SB)
