Abstract

This review aims to look at the research undertaken in each of the two branches of Autistic Spectrum Disorder therapy, comparing and evaluating their individual successes and looking for an integrated way forward including the role of play and playfulness in therapy and the difficulty of play for children with ASD. The definition of play is discussed as well as the relationship between play and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Future directions are suggested including looking at a definition of what constitutes play and a playful situation for a child with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, an integrated therapeutic approach in an everyday environment.
