Our observation room at Wonderful Minds comprises of two parts.
The first part is an enclosed safe room with a one way mirror. Here, specific activities are set up based on the child’s needs and therapeutic goals. This safe and comfortable space allows the child to explore the environment, calm self-down and engage in productive activities.
The second part is the observation room. The one way mirror makes sure that the child’s behavior is not compromised by the adults’ presence or by any other stimulus. It also allows therapists and parents or caregivers to observe the child engaging in the planned activities.
The observation room has a variety of uses, some of them are:
– Observation of the child in free play
– Interest exploration
– Anger management
– Behavior modification
– Demonstration of strategies and interventions that parents can replicate at home
– Co-therapy, enabling collaboration between therapists by observing the child in different environments.
