Hold Everything: “Stay-Put” Play Spaces for Infants and Young Children with Sensory Impairments and Other Special Needs
This PDF guide provides you with twenty do-it-yourself “Stay-Put” play spaces for infants, preschoolers and developmentally young children with sensory impairments and other special needs. The “Hold Everything!” booklet, based on a workshop by the same name sponsored and hosted by The Ohio Center for Deafblind Education, is designed to provide parents and early childhood educators with 20 initial ideas for developing “stay-put” play spaces for infants and young children with sensory impairments and other special needs.
It is hoped that the readers of this booklet will use some of these ideas and go on to develop additional creative approaches that will encourage self-initiated exploration, play and learning.
