Children tend to be uncooperative when they are at the comforts of their home as they are easily distracted by so many things like toys or gadgets. But when it is center-based, it programs the child’s mind that it is time for therapy and not like any other in-home activity because access to toys and gadgets is absent. This has a beneficial impact on parents as well because, in a center-based therapy, parents are far from being distracted by tasks or chores as the setting refocuses their mind about the therapy. It is a great venue for parents to see and learn therapy techniques that can be done at home in conjunction with their child’s therapy.
