The present cross-sectional study aimed to assess the awareness and knowledge of parents about the role of play-based learning in improving social communication skills in children. For this purpose, a questionnaire was designed, content validated, and administered to hundred parents with children having typical development within the age range of three to eight years. The data obtained was consolidated and analyzed using percentages. Most parents (92%) were aware of the importance of play and play-based learning, and (86%) believed that play-based learning could improve social communication skills in children. Further, an E-book was developed as a resource material for parents, which included concepts like play, play-based learning, how to incorporate play-based learning at home, and various traditional games to develop social communication skills in children. An awareness class was also organized as part of the study.
