Treasure Island is a group based occupational therapy program for children who have cerebral palsy – hemiplegia. The group is run by experienced occupational therapists and is based on the latest research. 

The program offers Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT), an activity based intervention designed to improve upper limb movement skills.

During the program children:

  • Pretend to be pirates
  • Go on treasure hunts
  • Play games, and have fun! 

Why should my child participate ?

In addition to providing quality therapy techniques in a fun environment the group program will also help your child build self esteem, self confidence and develop friendships.

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

Who can participate ?

Children with cerebral palsy – hemiplegia aged 4-7 years old, who are able to understand and follow simple instructions.
