Opportunity for sensory experiences.
Language, literacy and communication development such as listening and expressing views both verbally and non-verbally.

Suggested starting points for engagement:
- Encourage a child to engage in exploration with the ball. Consider suggesting how the ball might be used for example, rolling, squashing, shaking, rattling, listening etc. Elicit other suggestions from the child (verbal and non-verbal) and follow their lead.
- Where appropriate, consider using the ball to support the child to engage in co- operative play. The adult might begin by rolling or handing the ball to the child and encouraging the child to pass it back in their own way. Be aware of any opportunities to include other children to foster social play.
