A Meta-Analysis Of Published Literature On The Role Of Loose Parts In The Play Behavior Of Non-Typically Developing Children
Prior research shows that the type of props that typically developing children play with may affect the amount and quality of their play. Less research has been conducted on the role of loose parts in the play behavior of non-typically developing children. This thesis was conducted in order to expand the knowledge on this topic. Five studies were analyzed; the published research suggests that loose parts props can aid non-typically developing children to engage in dramatic play, especially when prompted.
