What do the psychologists do?
Contribute to the development of the child on a safe basis taking advantage of its great plasticity and preparing him or her to successfully meet later stages. We also offer support to families by giving them a space where they feel understood and can have answered all of their questions about their children.
The purpose of therapy is to understand the inner world of the child through a collaborative relationship between parents and therapist. From this teamwork we find out the root of the problem to know where we should go and be able to draw a set path towards improving the quality of life of the child and his / her environment.
Through the game, in the case of the smallest children, the therapist will help the child to resolve conflicts in his own language.

¿Qué necesitas saber sobre el soporte externo a las escuelas?
En Espai Tau Kids ofrecemos la posibilidad de acompañar y dar soporte a alumnos con dificultades dentro de las escuelas, para realizar un tratamiento largo, diario y continuo que consideramos necesario en casos particulares. Les ayudamos a crecer colaborando siempre con el equipo de la escuela para que el desarrollo de nuestros peques sea completo e igual que de los demás.
Además del apoyo y soporte al alumno en particular, ofrecemos charlas y talleres para el profesorado. Nuestro objetivo es dar a conocer las fortalezas y debilidades de cada caso en particular para trabajar de manera conjunta. Los niños pasan la mayor parte del día en las escuelas por lo que allí es dónde el trabajo, la comprensión y la empatía hacia ellos son primordiales para su desarrollo.
En la actualidad Espai Tau Kids colabora con la American School of Barcelona ofreciendo este servicio.
