Positive impact on pupils

The Marigold Centre have been providing principles of Theraplay as well as Sensory Attachment Intervention to a pupil at my school. The combination of movement therapy and nurturing activities has had a huge positive impact on the child's behaviour and emotional well being. It supports him in recognising his feelings and how to self regulate . This has also had an impact academically as he is now able to concentrate for longer periods of time.We're extremely pleased with the results.
