The Ludic Model: Play, Children with Physical Disabilities and Occupational Therapy

Play greatly enhances our quality of life, and an attitude of playfulness can make life more interesting and enjoyable, especially for children. We are pleased to present the English version of an established publication focused on children's play: The Ludic Model: Play, Children and Occupational Therapy.

The Ludic Model proposes a unique approach to play in occupational therapy for children with disabilities, and was developed by Francine Ferland, a leading researcher on play and its impact on child development and a professor in the University of Montreal's occupational therapy program. Using children's strengths to work on their weaknesses, the Ludic Model explores various competencies that occupational therapists can use to facilitate children's play in daily living
