Effects of Parents' Play Routines on Imaginative Play Behaviors of Their Developmentally Delayed Preschoolers in Home Settings.
Yawkey, Thomas D.
This paper focuses on parents' play routines as an aspect of home intervention programming and explains the effects of such routines on the imaginative play behaviors of developmentally delayed youngsters. The paper is divided into four main sections. First, in order to understand the potential effects of parent play routines, the contributions of the three mainstreams of child development research to home intervention and play programs are surveyed. Second, selected methods and procedures of a particular parent-child-play program as used with low income parents and their mildly retarded children are explained. Third, the results of the study are presented. Finally, the results of the study, the limitations of the play program and possible modifications to it are discussed. (Author/MP)
