TABLE 7Integral Play Framework – explaining the links to theory and practicePerry ElseThe Integral Play Framework shows that the internal world of feelings for the child is as relevant as the world of objects shared with others. As children are playing they are using their bodies to move through and experience the world, either solitary or with others. Those sensations are processed internally and inform the child’s self awareness, feelings and beliefs, which may be shared with others.

Perry has been using this model of the last decade and used it as the backbone of his first book The Value of Play. Some people have started asking questions about the IPF: How does it explain theory? How does it explain practice?

How can it be used in practice?
For planning work with children?
For planning how the setting works?
For evaluation and reflection?
For resource allocation?
To work with partners?

The Round Table session will explain the Integral Play Framework and begin to answer these (and any other) questions, and show how the framework may be used to assess other models and approaches.
