Twenty preschoolers and their parents will be recruited to participate in a pilot study run by researchers from the Case Western Reserve University psychology department to test an intervention strategy designed to teach children how to be better players.

The Children's Museum of Cleveland will collaborate on the project and help the psychologists find the child-parent teams through visitors to their museum in University Circle. The project will continue through August.

According to Sandra Russ, Case professor of psychology and the lead researcher on the facilitating play project, the importance of children's play is underestimated. Preschool children are at an important developmental stage where play can foster a host of skills for children. Read the full story.
