I am certified in Autplay® Therapy, a specialized form of play therapy that uses behavioral therapy approaches and family engagement to assist youth in developing
Autplay® Therapy was created by Dr. Robert Jason Grant to address the unique needs of children and teenagers with neurodevelopment disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), within a therapeutic setting.
This approach to therapy meets clients and families where they are and builds on their strengths and interests to take them where they want to be. Through thoughtfully designed games and exercises, parents and youth will learn together how to engage with one another and communicate effectively. They also learn how to have fun together, which strengthens resiliency and connection within the family.
AutPlay® Therapy addresses six target areas:
Increasing Emotional Regulation Ability
Increasing Social Skills Development
Increasing Connection (Relationship Development)
Improving Sensory Challenges
Decreasing Anxiety levels
Addressing Behavioral Issues
