Treasure Island CIMT (Constraint Induced Movement Therapy) is an intensive 9-day program for children aged 4-9 years with hemiplegia (or monoplegia), that involves the rehabilitation of the weaker arm while restricting the stronger arm in a hand mitt or arm sling.

CIMT leverages the latest research around neuroplasticity of the brain, which has shown that improvements are lasting, with follow-up studies being done 6 months to 2 years after a program has completed.

The program is delivered in fun, play-based, pirate-themed activities and games that are designed to engage and strengthen your child’s affected arm, and is run by experienced occupational therapists who provide quality therapy techniques in a fun environment that will also help your child build self-esteem, self-confidence and develop friendships.
