Interactive Play involves: development

  • modelling positive communication

  • mutually affective cueing

  • reciprocity

  • non-verbal communication

  • following the child’s attentional lead

  • shared focus on objects or activity

  • meaningful narrative

  • spontaneity


The neuroscience of play development

  • developmental - following the child’s lead increases communication, shared understanding and mutual engagement (Stern, 2003)

  • emotional - creating empathy and enjoyment between the child and play partner increases neural connectivity (Panskepp, 1998)

  • cognitive - the link between sensory exploration, interaction and emotional responsiveness is key to conceptual development and more flexible and imaginative ways of thinking (Hobson, 2002)

When only the rational aspects of learning and development are stressed we deprive children of the full range of human ability to think.

Gulbenkian 1982


Stories and Narratives are stressed we deprive children of the full range of human ability to think.

It is through stories and narratives that children with autism are able to communicate their inner mind and express their unique understanding of the world around them.

  • sand trays

  • drama

  • magnetic storyboard

  • sound stories

  • puppets

  • art


Promoting positive interaction and emotional well-being are stressed we deprive children of the full range of human ability to think.

  • Establishing connection

  • Shared play experiences influence the psychobiological attunement between the child and the supporter and are implicit in the development of affect and cognition.

  • Enabling communication

  • The emotional synchronicity that takes place through imitation, shared attention, and mutual enjoyment provides opportunities for mastery of new experiences, exploration and creativity.


Developing play and creativity are stressed we deprive children of the full range of human ability to think.

  • Creating meaning

  • by encouraging sensory exploration this helps to build concepts, create coherence and develop competence

  • Developing imagination

  • the development of symbolic play emerges through a shared experience that helps the child to extend their thinking about how to represent familiar objects


Play develops creativity, intellectual competence, emotional strength and stability and feelings of joy and pleasure, the habit of being happy.

Piers and Landau.1980


Diana Seach emotional strength and stability and feelings of joy and pleasure, the habit of being happy.
