Plasticity® Camp 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. While participants in the Plasticity® Camp for Kids receive similar treatments as the Plasticity® Recovery Program for their developmental, genetic, physical and/or cognitive challenges, they are coached completely differently. We make sure they know 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, moving better, reading faster, better social interaction, and sometimes reducing the needs for medications.
This camp 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. Telling a child less than 13 years old that they “are different” and “need to be fixed” can have detrimental consequences on self-esteem. Our clinical team recognized this and additionally identified that from a clinical perspective, in comparison to teens and adults, 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® Camp for Kids.
