  • 45 hours of one-on-one therapy in a group setting runs over a nine-day period
  • 11 hours of one-on-one pre-assessment, goal setting and post-assessment meetings, parent coaching and includes a NDIS report
  • The use of a hand mitt or arm sling to constrain the non-affected arm while engaging your child with fun activities to motivate them to use their affected arm
  • A custom-designed home program to further develop their skills at home
  • Coaching for you to maximise the benefits of the home program
  • Reassessment at the end to see how much your child has progressed.
  • Intensive therapy accelerates improvements in gross motor skills in a short time period resulting in long lasting results.
  • During the preschool years a child learns various new gross motor skills which are vital for playing with their peers and building self-esteem.
  • Children who have already developed strong gross motor skills but just need to stabilize or perfect a skill often benefit most from intensive therapy.
  • 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.

I have seen so much improvement! I will always be thankful that Ella has learnt more ways to be independent and use both hands.

I wanted my son to gain some function in his weak hand and he did. It gave him confidence.
Pippa
It was fantastic. She's using her hand more and also learnt to work in a group and wait her turn.
