Play Therapy Groups.png

How does it work?

  1. Complete a 55 minute, parent(s)-only intake with your therapist.

  2. Attend a 20 minute observation session during open playtime at Stop Drop and Play.

  3. Receive confirmation of group placement & time.

  4. Select a session package that matches the number of groups you’d like to attend.

    1. Add-on groups may be purchased later at the full rate.

    2. Each package includes 1-2 parent groups led by a second therapist.

  5. Confirm which dates you’d like to attend.

Group Structure

  • A typical group will start with an introduction to the day’s topic followed by a book.

  • Next, a structured activity will take place on the day’s topic to enhance learning and/or teach a skill.

  • The final portion of group is freeplay. During free-play, children are given open access to the Museum and can make choices to play in whatever way they prefer.

  • Your therapist will continue to observe and provide support to children and parents, as-needed.
