What is HABIT-ILE?

With global recognition, HABIT-ILE is a breakthrough therapy for children who experience challenges with hand and gross motor function.

Developed in Belgium in 2011, HABIT-ILE leverages the latest science in neuroplasticity and is clinically proven to provide lasting and significant functional improvement.

HABIT-ILE ran for the first time in Australia in July, 2017 and delivered astounding results. At the start of the program each child set goals and identified skills to focus on. At the conclusion of the program, performance of the skills identified were significantly and statistically improved*.

See what HABIT-ILE involves and hear from parents in the videos below.
*HABIT-ILE results were measured using the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure

What do parents have to say about HABIT-ILE?

“He’s really shown a lot of confidence over the 2 weeks. It’s been really good. You know, using his right hand quite a bit more at home, makes him think about using it as sometimes it can be forgotten.”

Luke Mitchell, parent of Super Learner Hunter

“It’s definitely worth it. I think the 2 week intensive is a good boot camp. And if you’ve been on a boot camp as a parent or in the working context, this is the same and the outcome is the same. The quantum kick of increasing their capabilities. It’s a must do.”

Richard Keith, parent of Super Learner Aaron

“He loved it. He was complaining about back pain and he’s not complaining anymore. That’s a really great achievement.”

Ami Soni, parent of Super Learner Tej

Did you know?

  • 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.
  • Intensive therapy accelerates improvements in gross motor skills in a short time period resulting in long lasting results.
  • Children who have already developed strong gross motor skills but just need to stabilize or perfect a skill often benefit most from intensive therapy.
