Play is a natural mode of communication for children. Play facilitates expression and exploration of children's inner and outer experiences. Young children often think in concrete terms, as they have not yet developmentally mastered abstract thinking. This advanced form of thinking is necessary to formulate and comprehend many verbal communications. Thus, children often lack the necessary cognitive and verbal abilities to articulate their painful emotional experiences. Play provides the opportunity for children to process and work through their difficulties in their own language.
“Toys are used like words by children, and play is their language.” – Dr. Garry Landreth
