Play is a child’s way of communicating and it should not be seen as just mere play but that the meaning of “play” is very important. Within the generation, we live parents no longer are able to skill their children through play. Much skill is lost and children more than often need to be taught the skill of play. Parents are at a loss with the different behavioural patterns their children display not being able to cope with these issues.



When a child plays it has much meaning to them as they express themselves through the toys they use to verbalise that what they ordinarily would not be able to express through words. They also will express through play that which they sometimes are taken to task for expressing in words. Therefore, play during the therapeutic process is crucial in a child expressing their thoughts, feelings and experiences.
