NEWCASTLE: Mighty Kids Therapy Program -July School Holidays

Mighty Kids is a functional, activities-based intensive intervention approach designed specifically for children with disabilities.

The program provides 1:1 intensive practice with a therapist, who will adapt and change tasks specifically to your child, to enable long-lasting individual improvements. This constant variable nature of practice enables your child’s skills to be achieved not only in a therapy setting, but also at home, school, or in the community.

We work with your child and your family to identify key goals around fine or gross motor skills development. Goals may include:

  • Fine motor skills such as dressing, tying shoelaces, cutting, or drawing
  • Improvement in the speed and legibility of handwriting
  • Stability and balance in sitting, jumping and hopping skills
  • Stability and balance in walking, running, or riding a bike
  • Using a knife, fork, spoon during meals
  • Typing skills and speed of typing
