Each child has an initial assessment which is performed by a minimum of two therapists. The purpose of the assessment is to:
- Evaluate gross and fine motor functioning and observe key areas of difficulty such as behavior, communication, cooperativeness, and relationship development.
- Identify activities that can act as positive reinforcements to promote participation for each child.
- Identify the type of communication that will be most effective for the child.
Once these have been identified, an individualized program is developed for each child. This program outlines their specific behavioral and motor development needs. As determined by the assessment, the child will start on one of our ten stages of Movement Therapy curriculum. We recommend that children attend two 1/2 hour sessions per week for a minimum of twelve months.
