Welcome to The Ohio Association for Play Therapy (OAPT)! The OAPT is a chartered branch of the Association for Play Therapy. Ohio APT is a not-for-profit incorporation that is dedicated to providing a forum for the professional growth and development of the play therapist, providing training to the mental health community, and advocating for appropriate mental health treatment for children.

We invite you to join us for our annual Spring and Fall Conferences in Columbus, OH. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Registered Play Therapist (RPT), please contact us and we would be happy to connect you to fellow play therapists in your area. 

"The Power of Play will Blow you AWAY!"

Play is a natural-fun-creative-spontaneous-necessary experience for children and adults to develop healthy lives. The capacity to play appears to be built into our biological makeup as we can hardly restrain or be restrained from some form of play in our lives.
