Toys are like the child’s words and play is the child’s language.
Play helps a child develop mastery over his innate abilities resulting to a sense of worth and aptitude.
Play therapy is a special kind of play that allows the child to lead the work. Sometimes this work is called Child-Centered Play Therapy. The child gains confidence and control over feelings and thoughts in the setting of the playroom. The process takes place over time and allows the child to gain a better sense of self and self-worth, which can help replace challenging behaviors.
