Helping Hands House Brochure

“Mini” Camp Helping Hands is designed for children from 18 months to three years of age with hemiplegia of an upper extremity. It is based on the evidence of research involving constraint-induced (CI) movement therapy for children with Cerebral Palsy and adults who have had a stroke. Programming is for at least 3 hours per day, 5 days per week for 4 weeks. Camps and classes are offered at convenient times throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to stay with their child, ask questions and participate in the therapeutic activities of the camp. This helps facilitate carryover at home and to continue the benefits of therapy at home.

CI therapy is a group of therapies designed to restrain the use of the unaffected upper extremity and encourage the use of the affected upper extremity through practice. A removable soft-cast with straps is custom made for each child for the unaffected upper extremity. All activities are age-appropriate, fun and therapeutic for the child. Even snack time is eaten with the cast on! It is recommended to discuss this alternative delivery method of intensive therapy services with your physician, therapist and family members to determine appropriateness, timeliness and efficacy.

The primary goals of the camp are three-fold: to increase functional use of the hemiplegic upper extremity, to use BOTH hands together better and to have FUN.
