Foreword by G. Gordon Williamson

"Of enormous benefit for all those who wish to bring the forces that mobilize the developmental processes into the day-to-day world of the young child’s educational setting."

–Stanley I. Greenspan,
M.D., George Washington University Medical School

"A wonderful resource on the subject of play and its pertinence to young children with special needs."

ASHA Leader

Part I provides the philosophical and historical background and a descriptive overview of the Supportive Play Model, including a chart that can be used with all the cases. Part II contains four case studies that deal with developmental issues often seen in young children with special needs and illustrate the formulation and application of SPM as it can be used with these children. Included with the first case is a completed SPM chart.
