Repetitive Activity in the Play of Children with Mental Retardation.
Lender, Winifred Lloyds; Goodman, Joan F.; Linn, Margaret Inman
Journal of Early Intervention, v21 n4 p308-22 Fall 1998
This study investigated the amount, quality, and persistence of spontaneous repetitive play and alternative types of play with 28 children (half with Down syndrome). Down-syndrome children engaged in more repetitive activity, though the quality of play was similar for both groups. Results suggest that repetitive play may serve the same constructive purposes for children with and without developmental delay. (DB)
