The relationship between language and play is a close and symbiotic one. A child with delays in either area will potentially show delay in the other. Symbolic play is a prerequisite for learning language. Before being able to use language, a child must be able to represent reality with symbols. Play skills must develop to a certain level before the corresponding language skills are possible. The CID Preschool Symbolic Play Rating Form is used to track play skills and their related language skills in children 8 months to 5 years old. It enables teachers to:
- determine present levels of play skills and language skills related to play
- determine goals for play skills and language skills related to play for IEPs and lessons
- track development of play skills and language skills related to play over time and
- report progress on play skills and language skills related to play to parents and other professionals
