Intensive Therapeutics has developed an intensive, community-based, group program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or sensory-motor issues who exhibit limitations in play, socialization and activities of daily living.
Camp Leaps and Bounds is a half-day camp designed to focus on gross motor, fine motor, social skills, self-help (dressing, eating, etc.) skills and sensory processing abilities. Services are provided in community-based children's activity learning centers to facilitate improvement of a child's goals in a fun, safe, rewarding, therapeutic atmosphere. Fun and challenging activities are led by two occupational therapists, occupational therapy students and volunteers. The staffing of Camp Leaps and Bounds makes it possible to work on a child's individual goals within the context of the group. If appropriate, a 1:1 child to staff ratio can be achieved. Peer models (typical children of corresponding age) are utilized to promote appropriate behavior. A day at Camp Leaps and Bounds includes music, activities of daily living, social skill development, arts and crafts, and sensory-based play in large groups (8-10 children), small groups and individually.
