AutPlay Therapy and the Virtual Sandtray App (VSA):

♦Check out the AutPlay package on The Virtual Sandtray  – a new media interpretation of a physical sandtray. It is a new and exciting way to bring sandtray therapy to places not convenient for physical sandtray therapy, such as hospitals, disaster areas, in home therapy and travel. There are new opportunities to treat clients, such as those unable to physically access a standard tray, those that are unable to work with sand due to sensory processing reasons, sand and food allergies, and those that will not work with a traditional sandtray. The AutPlay package features ASD specific models including several feeling emoticons. The AutPlay package also comes with 30 directive tray interventions designed for children and adolescents with ASD.
