  • 66 hours of 1-on-1 therapy with a dedicated practitioner including pre- and post-assessment
  • Personalised program based on your child’s interest and goals
  • Lunch every day and a graduation ceremony for the whole family on day 9.
  • Children aged 6-13 years who have mild to moderate cerebral palsy or similar condition (GMFCS I-III) who can follow instructions and participate in a group environment
  • With a goal to strengthen, fine tune or learn new motor skills so they can play and participate more confidently in everyday activities. Goals can include riding a two wheel bike, catching a ball, tying shoe laces, walking up and down stairs more independently and others.

HABIT-ILE ran for the first time in Australia in 2017, with astounding results. At the start of the program, each child chose skills to focus on. Nine days later, their performance of those skills was significantly and statistically improved (measured by the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure).

  • Between the ages 6 -12 years children fine tune and perfect their gross motor skills. This is a key time to work on strengthening and improving skills obtained in early childhood.
  • Intensive therapy accelerates improvements in gross motor skills in a short time period resulting in long lasting results.
  • Children who have already developed strong gross motor skills but just need to stabilize or perfect a skill often benefit most from intensive therapy.

After completing HABIT-ILE intensive therapy program other Super Learners Alice, Tej and Hunter achieved their goals and developed confidence to become more independent and participate more fully within their communities.
