Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in New York or for a New York play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
