Intensive Therapy

Our intensive therapy programs, which may include combinations of occupational, physical, & speech therapy, are customized for each child based on their needs & goals.

Intense Therapy, Intense Results!

At NAPA Center, we use the Intensive Model of Therapy (IMOT) when treating children with cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders. This treatment model is increasingly used throughout the world as patients, therapists, and doctors recognize it’s many benefits and outstanding results. NAPA therapists create a customized program for each patient that varies in time, duration, intensity, and tools used. Children often advance to the next developmental skill or higher during the three-week program. For example, if a child is using a walker, it is not uncommon for them to gain the strength, balance and ability to walk with crutches.

Many children gain more progress towards their goals in three weeks of intensive therapy than they do in a whole 12 months of ongoing traditional therapy.

We use a core combination of the NeuroSuit and the Multifunctional Therapy Unit (SpiderCage) in our intensive therapy programs on children of all ages starting as young as age three, and we continue to see amazing results.
In addition, our therapists travel to Santiago, Chile to study under Roman Cuevas, creator of Cuevas Medek Exercise (CME) to bring this amazing new intensive program to our patients. This very avant-garde physical therapy approach is inspired to provoke automatic motor responses in motor delayed children. We have seen tremendous results using CME for early intervention on children as young as three months and until they are 50 lbs. For more information on any of these, please feel free to check out the links below.

What Does the IMOT Program & Schedule Look Like?

NAPA therapists utilize the IMOT by treating patients 2-6 hours a day, five days a week, for three full weeks. The three-week intensive program is based on strengthening and conditioning, decreasing unwanted reflexes, and teaching new and improved motor patterns through repetition and correct alignment.
A unique feature of the intensive physical therapy program is that it includes time to thoroughly prepare the patient to exercise. Time is also spent in the Universal Exercise Unit which is a highly effective method of strengthening, increasing endurance, balance and functional skills such as kneeling or sitting to standing with less assistance. The time and duration of each intensive varies depending on the patient’s diagnosis, age, stamina, strengths/weaknesses, and other factors.
