Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Initial development of the Scale of Parental Playfulness Attitude during the co-occupation of play (PaPA, or Escala AJugar in Spanish) will be detailed. The PaPA is the first self-report measure, developed with the purpose of evaluating whether the approach of parents playing with their children between 2.5 and 6 years 11 months, reflects a playful attitude. It is expected to serve as a useful tool for professionals working on play with families of children with developmental challenges.
