Intensive Therapy in a nutshell….

Our therapists work 1:1 with your child daily, over a period of 2 or 3 weeks to achieve your child’s goals, whether it be sitting, crawling, bike riding or running!

Due to the nature of Intensive Therapy including repetition and sensory input, the neuroplasticity of the brain is targeted, facilitating new neuronal connections and subsequently the development of new motor skills.

Intensive Therapy allows us the opportunity to build on your child’s strength and motor skills each day, to achieve their goals in a much shorter timeframe, as compared to traditional weekly therapy.

We believe therapy should be fun so all of our programs are play based!
Your child will be engaged and love coming to therapy!

We offer 2 types of Intensive Therapy Programs;

For babies and toddlers aged 1 and 2

Junior Intensive Therapy
For children aged 3 to 12 years old

We believe therapy should be fun so all of our programs are play based!
