Working with children online is rewarding for me. I am creative and often customize the games and activities to fit the child’s specific needs. Children are more easily engaged in therapy with the use of activities they are accustomed to such as games, activities and workbooks and art projects. I frequently mail out packets to children that include supplies that we will utilize in therapy sessions, including workbooks of used, at no cost to parents.
Parents are frequently included in the therapy session or seen in separate sessions as needed. Children are often a bit sad when the issues they began treatment for are resolved or significantly improved and treatment is terminated, as children enjoy the time spent in therapy.
