The Benefits of Having Two (or More) Therapists

May 17, 2017


Some parents may often wonder why their child has at least two therapists.  We find giving children the chance to learn from multiple therapists more beneficial than one therapist because it allows the child to generalize new skills with multiple people instead of uniquely associating their behavioral/interpersonal responses to a single individual.  Each therapist engages the child with their own unique styles and personalities and utilizes different tools to address difficult situations and praise accomplishments.

In addition, we find it important for the child to have at least two therapists because we want them to feel comfortable and not have to worry about working with a completely new person should one of the therapist be out sick or on vacation.
