We uniquely offer intensive programs for all families coming to our center, out of town and local.
Children with developmental challenges benefit from intensive 1-2 week periods of Floortime and Floortime-based services where they receive an individually designed mixture of therapies to help them jump ahead developmentally. Ideally this entails multiple sessions per day.
Neuroscientist Edward Taub is examining the best intervals for this intense training. He has found that for plastic reorganization of the brain a two-week intensive training period of at least three hours a day seems to begin the plastic reorganization process within the brain. He is exploring this further.
Parents benefit from these intensive periods by receiving coaching multiple times per week to become confident in doing Floortime.
Intensive Floortime Programs include sessions in,
- Parent Floortime Coaching
- Sensory Integration Occupational Therapy
- Speech Therapy
- Vision Therapy
- Social Groups
When families return home we offer distance based training through Skype, conference calls, and video clip analysis.
