We'll walk you through how to change your game, so you can begin effectively helping your child learn and grow in a way that feels more fun and natural for everyone involved: through play!
Create a solid foundation.

NPT is an approach that simply makes sense.

You're not alone. We'll grow together.

Want to see what makes us different?
Natural Play Therapy combines the fundamental psychology of the Five Developmental Stages of Play with our own fun style of connection. We look at how all humans develop through these stages and bring natural back to therapy through play!
The first stage of play we ALL do from birth to death is Solitary Play. Rather than constantly working our butts off, it's natural for ALL of us to take time to relax, recharge, and integrate everything we're learning.
We all learn through observation. This is Spectator Play. It's a necessary, non-interactive part of the learning process, as it grows our understanding, confidence and comfort in trying something new. So it's important to create space for our child to watch us without pressure to make it interactive.
When we feel more confident and comfortable about what others are doing, we begin to loosely imitate other's activities in our own unique style. This is Parallel Play, which is the last non-interactive stage of play before our kids are ready to interact. We like to look at this stage as an exploratory stage of play!
We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek at our Playmation Video Series. We have two more videos in this series we want to share with you! These videos will show you what happens next, when our kids make a connection with us and become more interactive! They are waiting for you on our Connection Course Details Page!
