Handbook Play for Inclusion

ICDI developed the Handbook ‘Play for Inclusion’ on inclusive play-based activities that promote integration and healing from trauma for young refugee children. The handbook is intended for civil society organisations, educators, community development workers, mediators, ECEC and preschool practitioners, school teachers, teaching assistants, play workers, and volunteers. 

  • Parts One through Three of the Handbook are intended for civil society organisations, trainers, mentors, and ECD practitioners. These sections provide important background theory on the effects of war, displacement, and trauma on child development and well-being, the concept of community-based child-friendly spaces – Play Hubs, as well as an overview of non-formal ECD services in emergencies.
  • Part Four presents the benefits of intergenerational learning for young and old, with particular attention to social inclusion.
