Milestones FIT Sessions

FIT Sessions - Summer ProgramsFor the child who struggles with performing specific functional tasks within their daily routine, speech production or emotional regulation, summer is the perfect time for Family Intensive Therapy (FIT).

These high-frequency sessions focus on specific, targeted outcomes and includes parent involvement and extensive home programming elements.

Our therapists work with you to create a specific plan that addresses or corrects the functional challenge your child is experiencing through frequent, single-disciplined therapy.

The FIT program can be intense – three to four sessions per week, over six to eight weeks, for a total of 30 treatment sessions. There also will be homework, which is crucial to a positive family intensive therapy outcome.

“We have seen a dramatic decrease in the amount and length of our daughter’s meltdowns. Her sleep is more consistent, and her motor planning has improved greatly, among many other positive changes.” – A FIT parent

 

Milestones Bike Riding Intensives

Bike Riding Intensives - Summer ProgramsLearning to ride a bike is a classic rite of passage. For some children, losing those training wheels may be a more difficult process, but the end results will be that much more rewarding.

Bike riding intensives at Milestones’ therapy center in Downers Grove, Illinois, are for children ages 6 or older who want to learn to ride a bicycle independently but have been unsuccessful in the past. These will be scheduled as 30-minute individual physical therapy sessions three times per week.

A physician’s prescription for physical therapy will be necessary, and a screening or evaluation may be required. Parents will need to provide the child’s bicycle and helmet and will be asked to practice with the child at home.

 

Milestones Social Skills Groups

Take advantage of the summer to prepare your child for their new school year before it begins in August. Our Milestones therapy center periodically offers Social Skills Groups for preschool-kindergarten age children and for elementary-middle schoolers. The summer 2018 sessions will meet for eight sessions June 11 and 12 through August 6 and 7. Sessions are 5:30-6:30 p.m. with no class the week of July 4. Each small group of up to six children meets with both an occupational therapist and a social worker to become more comfortable with meeting new people and engaging with peers. Learn more at our Social Skills Groups page.
