This collection of journal article reprints 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. The articles are organized into three groups: (1) play of children with disabilities (seven articles); (2) family-centered services (six articles); and (3) assistive technology (nine articles). Topics covered in the articles include the following: social-cognitive development and toys; play-based assessment; play and communication skills in children with Down Syndrome; play deprivation in children with physical disabilities; play and concept development in infants with severe visual impairments; emergence of social play in infancy; family outcomes in early intervention; family-centered service coordination; early intervention and the parent-child interaction; assistive robotics; family-centered assistive technology decision making; assessing infant environments; and augmentative communication. (Individual articles contain references.) (DB)
