Child-Centred Play Therapy
How we promote
Therapy goals focus on improving the child’s quality of life, not changing who they are.
We make recommendations to change the child's environment according to their preferences, we do not change the child
We take sensory processing preferences into account and encourage the use of sensory and stim tools.
We have moved from person-first language to identity-first language as we acknowledge that the identifying word highlights the person’s embrace of their identity. For example, “I am an autistic person”, like “I am an Australian person” or “I am Deaf.”
We are passionate about supporting our clients to develop self-advocacy skills to allow them to communicate their choices, emotions and decisions.
