Therapeutic Approaches

Autplay Therapy

At Georgia Family Therapy, we proudly offer an array of therapeutic techniques to cater to the unique needs of every child and family we serve. One such technique is AutPlay Therapy, a specialized approach specifically designed for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Built on the foundation of play therapy, AutPlay Therapy provides a comfortable, engaging platform for these children to grow, develop, and thrive.

What is AutPlay Therapy?

AutPlay Therapy is a play and behavioral therapy approach specifically designed for children and young people with autism, ADHD, and other neurodevelopmental conditions. It incorporates elements of play therapy, behavioral therapy, and relationship development in a collaborative model that involves both the child and their parents or caregivers.

How does AutPlay Therapy Work?

AutPlay Therapy works by integrating play therapy techniques with therapeutic methods designed to address the specific needs and strengths of children with autism and neurodevelopmental disorders. This includes focusing on areas such as social skills, emotional regulation, relationship development, and sensory processing issues.

In an AutPlay Therapy session, therapists will use structured play interventions to help children learn and practice new skills. Parents are also involved in the process, learning how to implement specific techniques at home to further support their child's development.

Who can AutPlay Therapy Benefit?

AutPlay Therapy is beneficial for children and young people with autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and other neurodevelopmental disorders. It is designed to help those who might struggle with social interactions, emotional regulation, and sensory processing issues, and is typically most suitable for children aged 3 to 18.

How can AutPlay Therapy Help you Reach your Goals?

AutPlay Therapy can help children improve social skills, increase emotional regulation, and enhance relationship building abilities. For parents, it provides essential tools to support their child's progress and development at home.

At Georgia Family Therapy, our experienced therapists can guide children and their families through the AutPlay Therapy process, providing a nurturing environment for growth and learning. By incorporating this specialized technique into our practice, we aim to empower children with neurodevelopmental disorders to overcome challenges, develop resilience, and foster personal growth. Through AutPlay Therapy, we support each child on their individual journey towards reaching their therapeutic goals and realizing their full potential.
