about this item

Originating in a conference held at the University of Melbourne in July 2011, this book has contributors with perspectives across many disciplines. Douglas and Stirling examine connections between story, play, and pretense and many cultural and contextual factors that influence the manner in which these elements vary in children’s lives. Much of the collection addresses pretend play and story in children with autism spectrum disorder. Thirteen chapters are divided into three parts: pretense and storytelling in autism spectrum disorder; pretense and storytelling in the classroom; pretense and storytelling in cross-cultural development.

Children's Play, Pretence, and Story explores how storytelling and pretence interconnect, diverge, and influence each other in the course of development?both in neurotypical children and in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This is the first collection to integrate these topics within a single volume and highlight how they are also mutually informative. Featuring contributions from an impressive mix of international play experts and thoroughly interdisciplinary in scope,this collection is of value to researchers and advanced students of developmental psychology, early childhood education, and psycholinguistics.
