As children develop, it is important for them to expand beyond the relationship with their family and begin to explore social interactions with peers. Therapeutic dyads are a form of group therapy than can support social development.
For children with difficulties in peer interactions, it is important to provide opportunities to explore these social negotiations with well-matched peers supported by adults outside of the often-unforgiving environment of a typical playgroup or school. This is where therapeutic dyads can offer a fun and safe space to practice skills with the guidance of a trained therapist.
How do therapeutic dyads work?
When guided and supported by therapists, a dyad (pair) of peers can experiment with social interactions and social problem-solving in a managed way that reinforces successful interactions with therapeutic coaching and without dire consequences for failed attempts.
MoveAbout Therapy Services therapists actively assess children to determine an appropriate therapeutic fit and then discuss directly with parents to establish suitability and scheduling of therapeutic dyad sessions.
