What is Play Therapy?:
Play therapy is to children what counseling is to adults. Play therapy utilizes play, children’s natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings more easily through toys instead of words.
This is typically suitable for children aged 3-12.
The toys and materials are the way in which children in play therapy express themselves. These items serve an important role in play therapy.
Below are general guidelines we follow when selecting playroom items.
·Toys should provide variety in choice of expression
·Toys should be durable
·Toys should not be complex
·Toys should allow reality testing of limits
·Toys should allow development of positive self-image as well as self-control
