What is Treasure Island CIMT?

Treasure Island CIMT is an intensive 9 day program (36 hours one-on-one therapy) for children with hemiplegia or monoplegia.

CIMT, or Constraint Induced Movement Therapy leverages the latest research around neuroplasticity of the brain and is delivered in fun, play-based, pirate themed activities and games that are designed to engage and strengthen your child’s affected arm.

CIMT is run by experienced occupational therapists who provide quality therapy techniques in a fun environment that will also help your child build self-esteem, self-confidence and develop friendships.

  • This intensive runs 9 days during the July school holidays 2019 at CPA Ryde.

I wanted my son to gain some function in his weak hand and he did. It gave him confidence.

Did you know?

  • Intensive therapy accelerates improvements in gross motor skills in a short time period resulting in long lasting results.
  • During the preschool years (ages 3 through 5) a child learns various new gross motor skills which are vital for playing with their peers and building self-esteem.
  • Children who have already developed strong gross motor skills but just need to stabilize or perfect a skill often benefit most from intensive therapy.
  • Between the ages 6 -12 years children fine tune and perfect their gross motor skills. This is a key time to work on strengthening and improving skills obtained in early childhood.
We’ve done other intensive programs, but everyone who’s seen him since Treasure Island agreed they’ve seen more improvement by far, than any other program or therapies.

I have seen so much improvement! I will always be thankful that Ella has learnt more ways to be independent and use both hands.

It was fantastic. She's using her hand more and also learnt to work in a group and wait her turn.
