The Symbolic and Object Play of Children with Autism: A Review.
Wulff, Sharon Behl
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v15 n2 p139-48 Jun 1985
A literature review (1964-present) highlights several theoretical issues: the relationship of play in facilitating language and cognition, play as an intervention, and play as an assessment tool. Difficulties in research methodology are cited. The appropriateness of play therapy is questioned, and evidence is presented to provide encouragement for further inquiry into the study of autistic play. (Author/CL)
