Let's Play! Using Play to Help Children Heal - North Platte

Play has the capacity to nourish a child's mind, body and soul. Research shows, at birth, only 25% of the brain is developed. The connections and pathways that are being formed while children are at play are essential for healthy brain development. Through play, children learn how to problem solve, communicate, and it gives families the opportunity to discover one another on a nonthreatening level. Establishing a playful atmosphere with your child will bolster attachment, initiate healing and create a special connection that will last forever.



Right Turn® is a collaboration between Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska & Nebraska Children’s Home Society.
