What is an Intensive Therapy Program?

An intensive therapy program uses a delivery model of several hours of therapy per day, multiple days per week, for multiple weeks. This intensive service delivery model has demonstrated greater motor and cognitive improvements than programs of lower intensity.

Traditionally, pediatric therapy has been provided at a frequency of 1 to 3 times per week, 30-60 minutes in duration but in the last fifteen years, parents have been offered different therapy options for their children at varying intensities. Research has emerged supporting more intensive bouts of therapy services.

What are the Benefits of Intensive Therapy?

Intensive Therapy can accelerate progress in motor & cognitive skills.

Intensive therapy provides the time needed for repetition to create new motor skills along with the assistance of utilizing specialized therapy tools, techniques, and modalities. Vital aspects of intensive interventions stress the repetition of skills and functionally-relevant practice which helps to accelerate the acquisition of each motor skill. Therapists can provide optimal doses of therapy during an intensive program to help enhance achievement of mobility, language, and cognitive skills. Multiple research studies have demonstrated enhanced performance of skills in children receiving higher intensities of therapy in comparison to lower intensities.
