Our Children's Programs

Our intensive therapy program is designed to meet the child’s individual needs. We offer three-hour sessions, five days per week, for four weeks. The number of hours and length of the program may be modified based on the child’s needs and or/age (ex. 1-2 hours per day for a child under the age of 2.5 years).

The cost of the Intensive Therapy Program is $5,400 for the four-week program. It is at the parents’/caregiver's discretion to seek insurance reimbursement where available. We will provide documentation for such purposes when requested.

We encourage parent/caregiver observation and involvement during each session. We believe that active parents/caregivers play an important role in their child’s success. On the last day of the program, the family will be given a personalized home program and how to do all exercises with the child. This home program will include the child’s own pictures or videos and descriptions of the exercise and activity. 

Customized

Our customized therapy program is also designed to meet the child’s individual needs and is offered at the discretion of the families and our exercise therapists. These sessions can range from 0.5 hrs per week up to 10 hrs per week.

The cost of the customized sessions is $90 per hour.

*While research indicates greater functional gains take place during intensives, the customized program allows flexibility for all families and their differing needs while still allowing for progress to be achieved.

Equipment Used:

During each session we will utilize a wide variety of equipment appropriate for each child.
