A therapy intensive may be recommended for your child in order to maximize the effects of treatment. In a treatment intensive the frequency, intensity, and duration of therapy are increased over a relatively short period of time. Typically, a child is seen for 1 ½ hours in each of 3-4 consecutive days. Research has found this to be an effective and “intensive” model of intervention. Often this is a good choice if a child seems to have plateaued or needs a “jump start.” This is also a good option for clients who have to travel a long distance to the clinic. A home program is given at the end of the intensive with a follow up plan.
"For me, and I think I can safely speak for my staff, there is no greater feeling than helping a child to feel understood and helping a parent to better relate to their child. We help families to understand their child. It is in that knowing and understanding of a child’s individual differences that meaning can be found behind all behaviors." Sharron Donnelly, Owner
