Measuring Outcomes

Measuring Outcomes

Play therapy is a very effective intervention. The latest findings show that from a study of 8,000 cases  83% of children receiving play therapy have made significant positive change.

Children who were referred for play therapy due to their behaviour, anger, attention, hyperactivity and friendships became

  • Noticeably calmer and happier in school
  • They began to make healthier relationships with peers, parents and teachers
  • Concentration in class increased and children began to participate in learning more
  • Children had a stronger sense of self and had increased in confidence
  • Those children who struggled with behaviours and were at risk of exclusion made significant improvement.

Measuring Outcomes

We make sure we regularly evidence our practice

At TPC Therapy we know how important it is to ensure we can evidence our outcomes.
Our custom-made online system will capture and analyse our outcomes to provide detailed graphs, statistics and diagrams which you can use to evidence our practice.

Assessment tools we use
SDQ's( Strengths and Difficulties) questionnaires
Positive Impact Assessment's
Feedback from Parents/ Professionals
Transition/ resolution in play themes


We monitor outcomes every 6/7  weeks and produce a written review offering both the data and specific qualitative information about a childs progress. These can be used at multiagency meetings and other relevant assessment meetings. They can also be used to evidence our outcomes.
