I have done a detailed review for Fun at Giggles indoor playground about 2 months back. Recently, I was invited down to find out more about their new initiative – Play Therapy.
My child has autism / ADHD. Is it okay for him / her to go to an indoor playground?
This was the question which spurred the owner of Fun at Giggles to introduce Play Therapy. She has been volunteering to work with special needs children even before she went into the indoor playground business. And after she got roped into this business, she decided she wanted to gel her two passions to help children with special needs. For e.g. she had previously organized a charity event for Singapore Rainbow Centre.
As part of their holiday program, they taught the kids to fold hearts and for each heart folded, they donated $1 to Rainbow Centre.
What is play therapy?
Play Therapy @ Giggles involves 1 to 1 session between a caring facilitator and the child. It aims to promote social or motor skills through play.
A dedicated room was set up for the purpose to provide a safe environment for the child to play and learn, without feeling overwhelmed by other children in the main playground.
The facilitator will record and file up observations from the sessions to share with the parents.
