It surprises many that nearly half of our patient population are children. Brain challenges affect people of all ages, but it’s our unique ability to relate to, inspire, and treat children that is truly unique.
Plasticity® for Kids is a fun, engaging five-day “performance camp” for children up to 12 years old, who may have developmental or neurological challenges that prevent them from living a more fulfilling childhood.
We make sure each child knows they are completely perfect in every way, but they have the potential to be even better… like a superhero! This fosters trust, confidence, engagement, and excitement in relation to their time with us. What you may observe while they are achieving superhero status is better attention, improved thinking/cognition, better movement, faster reading, better social interaction, and sometimes a reduced need for medications.
How It Was Developed
This program for kids was developed from a collaboration between our clinical team and past patients. Children are physically, neurologically, and emotionally different than teens or adults.
The pre-teen years are pivotal times in neurological and emotional development and typically it is not until the age of 12 to 13 that a child can begin to recognize that they are “different” from their peers. Our clinical team recognized this and additionally identified that from a clinical perspective, children less than 13 years old need greater focus on vestibular and sensory-motor patterning and processing. These differences prompted us to develop the Plasticity® for Kids.
