    We understand that most children perform differently in a one-on-one therapy session than they do in a classroom setting.  Theraplay can help bridge the gap between skill achievement during therapy sessions and school success.  Therapists will visit your child’s school, observe classroom behaviors, collaborate and communicate with teachers, and suggest easy to apply solutions.

    These consultations are helpful for children with difficulty:

    Engaging with Classmates
    Sitting Still in the Classroom
    Becoming Easily Frustrated
    Following Classroom Directions
    Attending to Teacher Directed Activities
