Play Sheets. Let's Play! Project.
State Univ. of New York, Buffalo. Center for Assistive Technology.
This collection of play sheets for parents and early intervention personnel was developed by the "Let's Play! Project," a 3-year federally supported project that worked to promote play in infants and toddlers with disabilities through the use of "low-tech" assistive technology. Each single page guide provides guidance to parents of young children with disabilities on one play-related topic. The play sheets are organized into creating play environments, special toys, and positioning for play. The topics covered by the play sheets are reading books with your child, using an overhead gym, keeping toys within reach, hand and finger play, bathtub play, Gertie (an inflatable "tacky" ball) games, selecting switch toys, switch toys (where to begin), standing up, sitting up, and using a"boppy" (a crescent shaped pillow to prop up an infant or small child).
