What Does a Typical BPT Session Look Like?

Children develop certain behaviors that might disrupt their daily lives, thus putting them in a stressful position. It is even more difficult for the people around the child to know how to help them. Get to learn how Accel therapies help children with their behavioral issues. Lucky enough for children, they tend to show much difference after treatment compared to adults. We find that sometimes children have not yet developed proper speech or they do not understand languages. Since children are not good with words, then what does a typical session look like?

CAREGIVER PARTICIPATION

For children’s therapy to work effectively, a caregiver is needed to facilitate the process. Most times, you, as the parent, will be the caregiver. The pediatrician makes an effort to explain behaviors, experiences, and the success of therapy. Caregivers are responsible for homework that the child has. It is necessary for you to also participate in these sessions to monitor your child. In cases where the caregiver cannot attend the sessions, let your child tell you about their sessions.

GAMES AND PLAYING

Many times, children will communicate effectively while playing because it is what they love to do. They properly process emotions and experiences through playing, and they tend to form new ways of understanding the world. At Accel therapies, children have an opportunity to increase their problem-solving and decision-making skills as well as their emotional language. We have highly trained and experienced therapists who help children develop social and coping skills through different games and plays.

SKILL BUILDING

Usually, before a child begins therapy, the parent has already presented some concerns to the therapist that needs addressing. The skills children are taught during a session are those directly related to them. In some cases, therapists use role-playing, worksheets, or creative ideas. Children practice these skills and are given homework to test new skills.
