- Who was your favorite character in the movie? Why?
Caregiver Note: This is a nice ice-breaker question to get children talking. Think of how therapy goes for children of most ages… They may be willing to talk about fun things first but it takes time to build rapport to discuss deeper issues.

Feel free to share your favorite character and why to help model participation and help make connections.
