  • Reassessment at the end to see how much your child has progressed.

Taking part will also give your child the opportunity to meet and socialise with other children who have hemiplegia or monoplegia, whilst improving their hand skills.

 

Who is this intensive for?

Children with hemiplegia or monoplegia who are able to understand and follow simple instructions and cope in a group environment.Children must attend the entire 9 day program.
