Therapy always works best when it is a collaborative process. The best results are achieved when you commit to attending all the agreed therapy sessions and participate actively in your therapy, or in the case of parents or carers, actively support your child’s therapy.
Direct therapy is likely to involve participation in one-to-one therapy sessions, and regular practice of therapy strategies and tasks between sessions to help establish new skills, and importantly, to gradually introduce use of these skills into your everyday environments. Completion of these tasks can be as important as the therapy sessions themselves. Of course, the amount of time that you have available to support/practice therapy skills between sessions will always be taken into account in planning therapy, so that you can comfortably fit it into your lifestyle.
