Play therapy incorporates the child’s physical abilities, cognitive functioning levels and emotional needs in a safe, supportive environment. It is a therapeutic and psychological intervention that uses play to help children develop a better sense of inclusion through the use of non-directive play.
It builds self-confidence, interaction, and a sense of self. Playing is the activity that brings the most joy into the young lives of children, as well as being a child's main form of communication. Therapeutic Play capitalizes on that interest to help a child function, making it a powerful tool for treatment.
This type of intervention is suitable for children from the age of three and upwards. If you have any concerns, please make an appointment today to speak to our certified therapists.
