The study explored the nature of the interactive play behaviours of children with albinism and children without albinism and compared the interactive behaviours of both children with albinism and children without albinism. Naturalistic observations were conducted during periods of free play, using the interactive play behaviour checklist aided by video recordings, on three different days. The findings of the study showed that children without albinism showed more pro-social play behaviours, aggressive play behaviours, affiliative play behaviours and possession-related behaviours as compared to children with albinism. A significant difference was noted in the pro-social and possession-related play behaviours between the children with albinism and children without albinism. Children without albinism showed more interactive play behaviours as compared with the children with albinism. Both groups of children showed the same amount of aggressive and affiliative play behaviours, while children without albinism showed more pro-social and possession-related behaviours.
