Founder and President of National Institute for Play, California, USA.

My aim is a better understanding of the benefits of play for child development and how to put this research into practice. I want to establish the serious consequences of major play deprivation.

I am part of the growing movement that views our species’ need to play as an essential aspect of our long-term survival. I advocate credible science-backed evidence of the “public health necessity” of play.
