Parent Information and Registration
The well-being of our children, staff and all our families are of utmost importance and therefore because of the coronavirus pandemic, it saddens us that we will have to cancel the Kidz in Motion program for 2020.
KIDZ IN MOTION- where kids can be kidz! Our 5 full days therapeutic summer program combines an exciting "camp-like" environment with an INTENSIVE sensory integration treatment approach for children ages 4-11 with special needs. Children participate in a broad range of fun-filled activities designed to have a therapeutic benefit. This is combined with occupational therapy utilizing the sensory integration theory and various other neurobehavioral strategies accessing brain plasticity! The "Intensive" model is used to facilitate quicker therapeutic results in a shorter period of time. This program takes place right before school (what we consider a School Prep Brain-Booster)!
DATE: Cancelled due to covid-19
TIME: 8:00-3:30 pm
NO REGISTRATION for 2020
(Registration is only finalized with a COMPLETED application packet, Free screening and FULL payment)
This program was developed, organized and coordinated by the owners of OT For Kidz, occupational therapists, Paula Stewart and Christine Grant who each have over 20 years of clinical experience in working with children. Our "mission" is to provide a treatment environment in the context of a fun filled "camp-like" experience.
Although this is a group program, each child's program is created to fit their individual goals. Each child is paired with a counselor either on a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio.
Counselor's background may vary from occupational therapists, occupational therapist assistant, speech therapist, physical therapist, teacher, psychology, social worker and/or college students in any of these fields or a related field.

IS THIS FOR MY CHILD?
At no cost to the parent, each child gets screened to see if they meet the criteria for the program. Most common diagnosis for "campers" include mild to moderate sensory processing disorders which may or may not be in conjunction with other diagnoses such as Developmental Delay, ADHD, Learning Disability, Speech/Language Disability, Autism (including old termed diagnosis of Asbergers or PDD).

"My twins had the best time!!! It was so nice for my boys to be able to go to a camp and do fun things like other kids, but yet be getting a ton of OT. On the first day my son was able to say unprompted the name of his horse and what color. Paula and Christine and the entire team that worked with us have been amazing. My boys could not wait to go to camp everyday"
"My child actually made a friend!"
"I'm seeing amazing changes this school year in my son since being in the Kidz in Motion Program!"
"My son had just turned 4 years old and I was concerned that he wasn't really talking and he didn't respond to his name when I called him. After the program, he never talked so much! He's looking at me and others and just seem like a different child. It is 3 months later and he is still talking about this program. He will be there again next year!
"This program is awesome. For the first time, my son was able to tell me where he wanted to go and why. He maintained the skills he gained in the program. I only wish, this program was more than once a year."
