DRAMA BASED   THERAPY

EXPRESS  YOURSELF

Drama therapy  uses storytelling and make-believe to help children work through feelings. It also helps children work on imaginative play. Drama Therapy is a social activity that helps children build empathy and social skills.  By using voice and movement in a safe environment allows self-expression and communication. ABA therapy combined  with drama  techniques can help with a wide variety of interpersonal challenges.

 

Therapeutic intervention is especially useful for people who struggle with verbal communication  and social interaction. It is also a very sensory experience. Elements that engage the senses, such as touch, sound, and colors, are often used. These aspects are tailored to each child. 

Group drama therapy can improve face identification. It can also help with the ‘theory of mind’ (the ability to understand the perspective of others). Regular practice of social interactions during drama play can social and perspective-taking abilities.

A  research study  at the  NIH  showed that participants who received both home and center-based services had mastered 100 % more per hour while at the center than at home   (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5621997/).
