Play Therapy For Children| Age 4-12

Play Therapy For Children| Age 4-12

Before a child walks or talks, he or she has already learned how to play. Most of the time children cannot express their feelings in words so they express them through their behavior or actions. In play therapy, toys are like a child’s words and play is his language.

Benefits of Play Therapy:

  • Establishes an environment which is accepting and free of many restraints.
  • Creates an atmosphere that is comfortable and familiar.
  • Helps a youngster to learn about his or her behavior.
  • Assists a child to learn healthy coping skills to use at home and in school.​
