Some people are looking for specific clinical approaches, which is why we listed them here, but it’s okay if you don’t understand what these are right now, and we are not expecting you to pick one for your child. We will explain the approaches to you if we think your child would benefit from one of them.

Play-based

 

Play is the basis for all childhood development. Mr. Fred Rogers said, “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood”. Therapy is most successful when delivered in a play-based naturalistic way.
