“PLAY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE WORLD AND THE BEST SHARED ARENA OF ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTS.”

In my work as an occupational therapist, I was inspired to think about the importance of play for children’s development and as a basic starting point of learning and a place of participation. As a researcher, I have delved even deeper into the fascinating world of play.

I have developed a play assessment method with the working name RALLA or play assessment for group settings. Today, RALLA is much more. It is a company and a service concept aimed at producing researched and reliable tools for the use of early education and rehabilitation professionals. I have worked in everyday rehabilitation with children and helped train future experts for a long time.
