Intensive Therapy

Intensives enhance neuroplasticity for everyone to achieve their goals!

Intensive Therapy are programs that involve doing an increased amount of therapy for a certain period. This will vary for each kid but can consist of up to 4 hours of therapy a day, 5 days a week for up to 3 weeks!

Our intensive blocks are predominantly physiotherapy interventions, but can and often do include sessions from multiple disciplines, such as Speech and Occupational Therapy.

How does it work?

Intensive therapy works on principles of neuroplasticity (pathways to the brain and ability to learn!). By doing therapy every day, these pathways are formed quicker and can be more solid due to the high number of repetitions.

Children can reach milestones or achieve goals in a short period of time and newly learned skills should be more easily transferable into the home environment with the completion of intensive therapy blocks. These can be conducted as a stand alone, or in addition to regular weekly therapy
- we see results in both approaches!

Intensive blocks are…INTENSE! But the results you can see make all the hard work worth it!

Questions to ask when considering an Intensive?
  • What goal(s) are you wanting to achieve?
  • How long can your child tolerate therapy for?
  • Does your funding plan allow for this type of therapy?
