Play therapy clinic
Play is a natural part of childhood and is important in child development. Through play therapy, children also learn self-control, self-respect, to express their feelings, problem-solving, communication skills, and to modify problem behaviors. In children afflicted with cancer, play therapy is a comforting tool.
