Award-winning author Barbara “The Games Lady” Sher is an internationally popular occupational therapist specializing in developing children's natural love of play to enhance sensory, motor and social skills. “Here comes The Games Lady!” greeted her at the classroom door so often that the name stuck. Barbara’s “unplugged” approach to play emphasizes spontaneity and playful movement, using simple materials, throwaways and recyclables re-imagined in endless variations, as learning toys that encourage a vast array of skills.
A tireless advocate of the vanishing art of kid’s play, Barbara’s books, CDs, workshops and podcasts have enlightened and inspired parents, caregivers and teachers worldwide in ten languages. Her CD "28 Instant Songgames" won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio SNAP award, and Dr. Tony's Best Vacation Children's Products. She is a regular contributor to Parenting for Special Needs and Sensory Focus magazines.
Barbara currently works on the Northern Mariana Islands of Saipan, Tinian and Rota.
