Inspiring symbolic thought via a royal kingdom

October 18, 2017

 

 

Hark! Can thee believeth this?! 

 

Our symbolic play room has been transformed into a Royal Kingdom complete with a cardboard castle, knights and dragons. 

 

 

 Set to change every couple months, this therapy room is an important piece of our practice as it incorporates a symbolic theme which can be used to work on a child's specific therapeutic goals. For example, a child who struggles with fine motor may be more apt to persist in a challenging activity if he is making a fire-breathing dragon while alongside a castle turret. 

 

A child working on the motor plan of shifting from standing to crawling, can now practice these skills entering and exiting the drawbridge leading to the throne room.  We have even strategically placed velcro inside our cardboard structure to hang laminated story book characters.  When we give clues to a child on where to find these characters, kids not only work on the comprehension of prepositions (above, below, next to, etc.) but also must move their bodies and fine tune their visual spatial skills.
