My family is grateful for PBHH. They have helped us make life easier, more fun and my kiddo is progressing more than ever.
PBHH was right on time. Just when I thought I would have to quit my job I found them and they have helped provide the care my kiddo needs. They are reliable and fun.
I never thought it was possible for my kiddo to be normal again. PBHH has partnered with their other therapists and the progress has been amazing. I have hope that I never had before. It saved my marriage and made my kiddo so happy.
Play Therapy Vs. ABA Therapy
Play Therapy, like ABA, is also a behavior therapy. The difference is that we view 'behaviors' in young children and elderly, that are considered by adults, to be 'negative' as simply a frustrated or scared person’s way of trying to communicate, to get your attention. So, we focus on developing those engagement and communication skills using the most natural and best strategy for young children and elderly, play! And don't forget, the reward in PLAY therapy is the relationship and understanding.
What is Play Therapy?
Play therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach primarily used to help children and elderly explore their lives and freely express repressed thoughts and emotions through play. Therapeutic play normally takes place in a safe, comfortable playroom, where very few rules or limits are imposed on the child, encouraging free expression and allowing the therapist to observe the child’s choices, decisions, and play style. The goal is to help children learn to express themselves in healthier ways, become more respectful and empathetic, and discover new and more positive ways to solve problems.

What are the Benefits of Play Therapy?
Therapeutic play helps children/elderly with social or emotional deficits learn to communicate better, change their behavior, develop problem-solving skills, and relate to others in positive ways. It is appropriate for children undergoing or witnessing stressful events in their lives, such as a serious illness or hospitalization, domestic violence, abuse, trauma, a family crisis, or an upsetting change in their environment. Play therapy can help children with academic and social problems, learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, anxiety, depression, grief, or anger, as well as those with attention deficit disorders or who are on the autism spectrum.
