Play and Early Learning Handouts
The Play and Early Learning Handouts have been developed by DOT(WA) to demonstrate ideas using photos to promote the development of play and early learning skills for children.
The ideas provided are fun, easy to include in normal everyday activities and are suitable for a range of ages and abilities. It is recommended the handouts be used in consultation with an occupational therapist or another professional with experience working with children. Funding for the development of these handouts was kindly provided by Non-Government Centre Support (NGCS).
Susan Peirce, Occupational Therapist was appointed as the Project Officer to develop the handouts and is the principal author, having consulted with an expert panel of Occupational therapists: Leigh Dix, Jenny Dobe and Jodie Mazzucchelli; members of DOT(WA) Executive Committee: Rachael Fallows and Suzanne Wilkinson as well as more widely with the membership of DOT(WA)
Thanks are extended to the children and their parents who agreed to have their photos included in the handouts and to the professionals and friends who contributed to the handouts by providing valuable feedback.
Please ensure that the disclaimer is provided with each handout, which is on the second page of each PDF document.
