Play is not something that comes easily to Sir. He’ll play Angry Birds on his tablet, he’ll go and bounce on the trampoline with his sister but rarely does he just sit and play with a toy by himself. There are loads of toys gathering dust under his bed because he just doesn’t play with them.
Lately however, and especially this week, he has started to do just that. He’s been playing with his toy cars, his marble run, his Angry birds raceway, his kitchen and his train set. I have learned not to ask him if he wants to play with something new but just to get it out of the box, assemble it and leave it for him. Generally Madam will want to play with it and then he will join in. I’ve noticed he’s using his imagination more when he plays too, making up stories as he goes.
With SEN kids a lot of emphases is put on physical and educational development, so it’s nice to see his imagination developing too.
