Authored by Mastrangelo, S. in Teaching Exceptional Children, Volume 42, Issue 1, p. 34-44, (2009).

Article summary (posted Feb 25, 2010)


Play can be a bridge between the teacher and a child with autism.

Play is helpful for all children and it is very helpful for children with autism. When children play, they learn about the world around them, test ideas, ask questions, and come up with answers. For a child with autism, play can be balanced with structure and following the child’s lead. Play can be used as a way to teach children to name objects and to pretend. Some play, such as matching games, may be hard for children with autism.
