The White Paper “Potential and Possibilities” is a model for providing children with disabilities access to the benefits of play experiences. When a child enters the realm of play, he also enters the realm of potential and possibilities. Children who have disabilities can and do face obstacles engaging in play. As a child experiences new situations through the act of play they create new understandings and conceptualizations of the world around them. When the child’s special needs are thus met, they can depart from a world of struggles, tasks, therapies and treatments into the joyful experience of play and through that accomplish more than anyone ever dreamed possible.
