1 to 1 Play Session 
Office and Home based

The goal of the 1:1 play session is to help the child develop the foundations needed for connecting with others. We begin by focusing on building a trusting relationship, creating a comfort zone in which a back and forth flow can begin. Building a relationship in an environment where a child feels safe, made to feel accepted, understood and respected is most productive for learning and growing. As the flow of initiating and responding, (both through verbal and non-verbal communication) increases, opportunities are created within the engagements to problem solve, increase flexibility, and expand imagination.

 

Sessions may include videotaping, upon approval, to create an individual profile, identify goals and document progress. Additional support may include weekly Skype sessions and email with parents for parent training.
