What does ‘therapy’ look like?
This will depend on a number of factors, including age of the child referred and the condition they present with.
In some cases it may be appropriate for the Therapist to work directly with the child on specific targets. In other cases, therapy may take the form of modelling interactions with children to parents with a view to coaching parents on how to enter their child’s world.
In all cases, there is an expectation parents will be involved in therapy at some level. No matter the type of therapy offered we will always have an expectation that parents will be involved at some level.
Parents are in the best place, in terms of emotional bonds and frequency of interactions, to support change in their children.
