Personalized Treatment Plans that Work
Offered in a group setting, these innovative intensives pair children with therapists to focus on particular challenges in a comfortable and fun environment. Kids are not only able to focus on strengthening skills, but their relationships and ability to engage in a social setting. Intensives are “intense” as they meet several times a week, giving your child an opportunity to build skills more quickly.
Bike Riding Intensive
The ability to ride a bicycle is an important milestone for children – enhancing self-confidence, participation in family activities and social relationships with other children. Because of the multi-layer neurological integration that occurs when riding a bicycle, children often excel in other developmental areas once they’ve mastered this skill. Through our four- to seven-day bike riding intensive, we focus on the integration and smooth functioning of several key developmental processing areas – visual-spatial processing, motor planning, motor activation and control.
Finding New Foods Intensive – SOS Feeding
Do you have a picky eater at home? Is your child hesitant about the thought of new foods? This intensive will focus on interacting with new foods in a fun and safe therapeutic setting. Playing with food is required!
Fine Motor Intensive

Teaching Yoga to children helps support self-control, body awareness, flexibility and strength. These are the foundations needed for emotional grounding, attention and positive sense of self which then positively impact the child’s daily routines, relationships and availability for learning.
