Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

An occupation-based assessment tool is needed to support therapists in their assessment of how parents’ behavior impacts how their young children's play. The usefulness of the Parent's Caregiver Support of Young Children's Playfulness (a new assessment tool) for identifying how parents' behavior influences their children's playfulness, was examined through a mixed-methods study.
