Abstract: Toys and play are critical in children's lives. It is through play that children learn how to interact with their environment and other people while developing their cognitive, speech, language, and physical skills. The way children play reveals many things including whether or not they are hitting particular development milestones. Play is also used by professionals who intervene when those skills are not acquired. Speech and language pathologists (SLP) use toys to tailor tasks based on their objectives for the child, determined following their assessment. For this reason, toys are vital tools.
