Harnessing Growth: The Magic of Play Therapy

Welcome to our Play Therapy program, an innovative and engaging approach that harnesses the power of play to promote holistic development and foster essential life skills. At Umang Institute, we recognize the significance of play in a child’s growth journey, and our specialized Play Therapy sessions are designed to facilitate learning, communication, and emotional well-being in a nurturing and enjoyable environment.

Understanding Play Therapy:

Play Therapy is an integral part of our Occupational Therapy program, which utilizes play as a medium to help children build essential skills and achieve developmental milestones. Through various play-based activities, our skilled therapists create a safe and supportive space where children can explore, express, and learn while enjoying themselves.

The Importance of Play:

Play is a child’s natural language, and it serves as a powerful tool for learning, self-expression, and social interaction. In Play Therapy, we embrace the notion that play is not merely an activity but a fundamental process that allows children to make sense of their world, build connections, and develop critical skills that form the foundation for future growth.

Our Play Therapy Approach:

At Umang Institute, our Play Therapy sessions are child-centered and tailored to meet the unique needs and interests of each child. We recognize the therapeutic potential of play and carefully select activities that align with the child’s developmental goals. Through a combination of structured and unstructured play, our therapists facilitate learning, social interaction, and emotional regulation.
