Mighty Movers

Focused therapy programs are intended to allow children to address their therapeutic needs and goals amongst peers working on similar goals. The Mighty Movers physical and occupational therapy program enhances gross-motor skills and sensory organizational skills by walking and running over various surfaces, climbing, jumping, and negotiating equipment. The open room setting allows interaction with other children without overwhelming young toddlers. Parent instruction on how to maximize therapeutic benefit from gross-motor and sensory play is included.

Who Can Benefit?

Children with physical or sensory impairments who are walking independently and need to work on advanced gross motor skills, such as those mentioned above, may participate. Ask your child’s therapist if this program would meet your child’s needs.

  • Improve general fitness, endurance, balance and strength.
  • Improve self-awareness and motor planning.
  • Improve ability to move through obstacles independently.
  • Improve gross motor skills.
