Learn to Play Therapy

Learn to Play is a unique therapeutic program targeted at developing a child's capacity for pretend play. Pretend play is an essential part of a child's development as it is a thinking skill. Pretend play helps children to develop social skills, awareness of emotions in themselves and others, language skills and problem-solving skills.

Children who are experiencing difficulties with social skills, learning difficulties, or children with diagnoses or symptoms of Autism or learning disabilities may be suitable for this program. This approach is more directive and the therapist will be more active in teaching your child pretend play skills and social skills.

Referrals for Learn to Play will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and are generally appropriate for preschool or primary aged children.
