Initial thoughts were, “how will I build rapport and trust and play with the child, whose interests and strengths are yet to be discovered? “
A flexible plan was made that had possibilities for spontaneous activities based on the child’s responses. Though the missing part was actual presence of physical play, there was still room to build an atmosphere of playfulness. Keeping this in mind I moved towards creating a comfort zone.
This is how I gradually adapt with the children who I work with newly now. This process surfaced new learnings with every child.
