Speech and physical therapy can also be added to the program to truly provide comprehensive services all under one roof!

IIP is an individual program (1 child: 1 therapist).

Your child will receive four weeks, Monday-Friday, up to 6 hours a day of constraint-induced movement therapy and bimanual therapy.

You choose any 4-week period throughout the year between September-May.

At our West Caldwell site there is a house to stay in for the whole family!

Then just walk across the driveway to our 2 floors (each 7000 square feet) of fun therapy space and our 3000 square foot playground!

Parents are interviewed prior to the program so we gather up-to-date information about your child’s goals. We welcome information from other therapists, schools, doctors, etc. so we can truly work on the goals you want.

Because most of the goals established are 2-handed (bimanual) goals for example:

  • Pulling up socks/pants
  • Eating a sandwich
  • Buckling a seatbelt
  • Carrying a lunch tray
  • Catching a ball

We have established a protocol for wearing the cast. The cast will be worn for the full 6 hours per day for the first 2 weeks. Starting with the 3rd week of camp, we  “wean” the cast off 1 hour more each day so by the 4th week we are working exclusively with 2 hands. This way we can actually work on and practice 2-handed (bimanual) skills and the actual goals of each child. We also recommend continuation of therapeutic activities as much as possible throughout the program.

As occupational therapist’s we are aware of other issues that could impact your child’s functional abilities, such as:

  • Visual issues
  • Neglect
  • Balance
  • Gross motor issues
  • Posture
  • Sensory issues
