Next Step Intensive Therapy Program
We are excited to announce that we are now offering an intensive therapy program for children with neurologically-based impairments. During this three week program, your child will receive physical and occupational therapy for a combined three hours of therapy each day, four days per week (M-Th). Each individualized daily session is composed of 90 minutes of physical therapy and 90 minutes of occupational therapy.
This intensive program is designed for children with neurologically-based impairments, including but not limited to cerebral palsy, spina bifida, pediatric stroke, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, traumatic brain injury, arthrogryposis, genetic disorders, and other developmental diagnoses. Some indicators that your child may benefit from an intensive burst of therapy are:
- Slowed rate of motor acquisition expected for their diagnosis and age
- Developmental plateau
- Several skills emerging but limited functional carryover
Program Goals and Benefits
Intermittent bursts of intensive therapy have been shown to help children improve their motor skills and help progress towards the next level of functional movement in a shorter period of time. Children can then return to their traditional therapy with emergence of new milestones, mastery of a new skill, and increased confidence in their current skill set!
Our program focuses on your child’s strengths and works to target their areas of need. We conduct extensive physical therapy and occupational therapy evaluations prior to your child beginning the intensive program, which enables us to provide a tailored therapy program specific to your child. Following the evaluation and consultation with your child’s ongoing therapist(s), our clinicians will propose goals for the three-week program with your family’s priorities in mind. These goals are then monitored and measured weekly to track your child’s progress.
