"Messy play is a vital way for children to develop their sensory awareness of the world around them. Provides activities that stimulate the sensory perception of children with special needs through the imaginative use of everyday 'messy' materials... believes that these kinds of activities, not usually allowed in most homes and schools for being too messy, are exactly the kind of activities that young children with special needs should be engaging in... This practical resource for parents and professionals shows how allowing children the freedom to play with sticky, gunky substances in an unashamedly messy way can not only stimulate sensory awareness but also improve their coordination, communicative and cognitive abilities, as well as boosting self-esteem and social skills." - BOOK JACKET.
