Abstract

Child-directed play is essential for the healthy development of children. However, many children are experiencing a reduction in access and opportunities for play, and the consequences are being referred to as play deprivation. The numerous benefits of play significantly overlap with the American School Counseling Association's comprehensive school counseling domains of academic, personal social, and career development. School counselors have a unique role as child development experts to make a positive impact on the play lives of children.
