In the process of growing up, most children experience difficulty adjusting at some time. Some children may need more help than others in certain areas. Children have a hard time sitting in a big chair and talking about what bothers them. They don’t know the words to describe what they are feeling or what they are thinking, so sometimes they need to act out or show how they feel.

In play therapy we provide toys, arts and crafts for children to use, to say with toys what they have difficulty saying with words. In the play therapy experience, toys are like the child’s words and play is the child’s language.

Finding Balance Occupational Therapy and Play Therapy is extremely proud of their play room. The room conveys a sense of warmth and openness that communicates a message of respect, care and trust. The toys and materials are deliberately chosen to facilitate the children’s expression in their natural language-play.
