Milestones Summer Programs

Downers Grove, IL 

Milestones offers therapeutic experiences in the summer that are not as easily accommodated the rest of the year. Please check for the latest intensive summer programs at our Downers Grove, Illinois, therapy center as you plan ahead for next summer. The following are typical offerings.

Milestones FIT Sessions

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

The FIT program, which focuses on a single targeted outcome, can be intense with 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 result. Learn more at our Family Intensive Therapy page.

Milestones Bike Riding Intensives

Bike Riding Intensives - Summer ProgramsBike 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 in a Social Skills Group. These are periodically offered in separate groups for preschool-kindergarten children and for elementary-middle schoolers. 

Sessions are one day per week, usually 5:30-6:30 p.m. Each small group of up to six children meets with both an occupational therapist and a social worker to gain comfort in meeting new people and engaging with peers. Learn more at our Social Skills Groups page.
