This #GivingTuesday please consider supporting our Counseling Care Pediatric Play Therapy Room. The Counseling Care "Playroom" was created in 2003 and is in need of updating. This redesigned space will provide a safe space for children to express themselves to their counselors and learn to understand their emotions.

Below are a few examples of what we would like to add to our Therapy Room to help children improve their focus and understanding of how to overcome their fears and feelings.

Sensory Walls Can

  • Increases concentration and focus attention
  • Promotes atmosphere exploration where children can enjoy
  • Develops the concept of cause and effect
  • Develops language and communication stimulation
  • Promotes social interactions with teachers and peers
  • Results in more calmness and lower aggressive behaviors
  • Increases opportunity for self-awareness and making choices
  • Promotes sharing and turn taking skills

Practitioners who work with special needs individuals and children have found that the even pressure of the bean bag instills self-regulating emotions and calms the nervous system. It reduces hyperactivity and decreases the chances of stress and/or anxiety attacks.

If a child is often hyperactive or anxious, a sensory table can have a calming effect them. The objects on the tables tend to capture children’s attention and engage their minds. The kids are presented with strange objects like clay, new textures like rice, and alluring smells like popcorn. This engages and calms them.

A body sock is a sensory room product that provides a calming effect. It’s made of breathable and stretchy material that can be worn even while sleeping. A body sock also promotes

  • Self-calming
  • Balance
  • Body awareness
  • Imaginative play
  • Visual and motor coordination
