What is "Therapeutic Play"?

Therapeutic play: Because the natural progression of a child's physical, emotional and intellectual development occurs through play, chronically ill children who are frequently hospitalized need to have the opportunity for play to occur in the hospital setting. Through therapeutic play, a child's illness will not halt his/her development.

Therapeutic play also helps hospitalized children to accept and understand their diseases and treatments, to decrease stress and anxiety, and to increase coping through developmentally appropriate support and education.
