The Benefits of Medical Play With Preschoolers: Reducing Fears and Increasing Knowledge and Coping Skills
Presentation given at the 26th Annual Southern Conference on Children. Medical play can be introduced by preschool teachers to familiarize children with medical equipment and procedures so that they are more informed and not as fearful of going to the doctor. Participants will learn how to implement a number of developmentally appropriate medical play activities to use in the classroom, such as setting up a teddy bear clinic and art activities.
