This exciting new program focuses on providing a creative and interactive story and dramatic play session to enhance verbal proficiency, encourage creativity and unleash the power of imagination to develop confidence, emotional and social skills and language development in young children.

Facilitated by a qualified educator and Master Creative Arts Therapy (Drama) student, your child will bring stories to life and explore the important themes through play and creative activities. Caregivers will also be equipped with ideas to support creative storytelling at home.

Ideas for stories and creative activities will be provided for families at the end of the program.

FAQ

The sessions include a fun warmup activity, a story, a story-focussed creative activity and then a closing and calming activity. 

You will be supported by a registered creative arts therapist to help your child better develop in the areas of social interaction, motor skills, language and communication and imaginative play.

Our expert facilitator can support you to participate in activities and make adaptations to the program to support inclusivity.

Come in comfortable clothes – clothes that enable you to move freely. A drink bottle – we may need to rehydrate during our activities, but a sip of water can also be useful to help self-regulate. It is encouraged that a snack is eaten prior to the session as no eating will be allowed during the session.

Caregivers will be provided with story and activity ideas at the end of the program to continue their child’s (and their own!) learning

Our  sessions are a fun and relaxed place to be and we understand that you want to capture your child in action, however, we aim to create a child-safe environment and respect the privacy of children and their families. Photography or video recordings are not permitted in the sessions, if you’d like to take photos of your child, this can be done at the beginning or the end of the session and photographs should be limited to just your child or family members.

Parents/carers are required to remain in session. This therapy requires the parent/caregiver to learn and support the child. Our therapy works towards capacity-building, which means upskilling you in ways that are effective in supporting your child’s growth and development.

If you don’t already receive therapy at Creative Therapy Adelaide, you will have an initial assessment session with one of our senior therapy team members before starting with this group. Call us to find out how to book your appointment: (08) 7080 4618 or fill in our expression of interest form.
