How Play Therapy Works

All children want to have fun. It doesn’t matter if they’re on or off the autism spectrum. Children have a powerful internal drive to play that can overcome almost any obstacle in their way.

Play therapy techniques shift the focus of this fundamental desire towards increased social interaction and language development.

Play therapy lets us become the thing that children want. When we become the source of their motivation and the object of their interest, learning becomes natural, easy, and fun.

Play.Connect.Grow. lets you learn and interact with your child from anywhere!
