Book Description

This pack includes twelve sets of the color-coded coding sheets plus 2 sets of blank sheets for use when constructing your own sets of toys. The Developmental Play Assessment for Practitioners (DPA-P) offers a comprehensive assessment of naturally occurring play activities for evaluating young children’s developmental progress accurately, so that useful interventions can take place as early as possible. It can be used by practitioners in a wide range of educational and therapeutic settings and is designed to support developmental progress through planning interventions in play, and using what we know about a child’s progress in play to plan play-based interventions in cognition, language, motor, social-emotional and self-help skills.
