Play Therapists plan out short to medium term programs with the child and works systematically through structured and guided play where the therapist leads the child in how they play or often times play therapy is unstructured and the child gets to choose how they play.
A wide range of activities and creative arts techniques are incorporated into the therapy responding mostly to the child’s preferences and this is the biggest difference between other types of specialized therapies such as art, music, and drama programs.
