What are Intensives?
Short Term, High Frequency, Big Results!
Research shows that many children benefit from receiving therapy services at a higher frequency over a shorter period of time when focusing on specific goals.
How Does it Work?
Children who participate in intensive therapy attend each day for anywhere between a week to 3 weeks in order to solidify skills needed for participation in everyday life. Intensives may be a great way to begin your child’s therapy experience or to help your child achieve a goal he or she is close to meeting. It may also simply be a better fit for you and your family’s lifestyle through what we describe as “burst” therapy.

What is Serial Casting?
Serial Casting is a process in which joints are immobilized in well-padded plaster casts in order to improve range of motion and alignment. By wearing cast(s), children are able to walk with improved alignment, allowing the muscles and soft tissue to stretch and elongate to a more functional position.
How does it work?
Casts are applied at the clinic and removed in succession (usually every week) over a specific period of time. During the procedure, the affected joint(s) are gradually and repeatedly set in improved alignment resulting in an increase in range of motion. Children wear the casts full time in order to allow for prolonged hold in an optimal position. Once casting is complete, children will be assessed for appropriate orthotics to maintain alignment and range of motion.
