Parents are the best judges of their own children and will be the first to notice any sudden changes in behavior or emotions. If not, and a teacher, helper or Daycare point out that specific behavioral changes are taking place, it is time to get your child into Play Therapy. Children come to play therapy for a number of reasons.

 

Things to look for:

 

  • Acting out
  • Seems anxious
  • Withdrawn or more extroverted
  • Social issues
  • Self-elected mutism

 

Play Therapy can also be used to enable your child to get through an event or trauma:

 

  • Hijacking
  • Bullying
  • Divorce
  • Abuse of any kind (Sexual, Physical and or emotional)
  • Accident
  • Grief and loss
  • Any abandonment issues/adoption
  • Crisis

 

Play Therapy can also assist with those that have a mental disorder:

 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • ADHD
  • ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)
  • Learning and Physical Disabilities
