    We offer 'Bootcamps' for specific skills such as handwriting, reading, visual skills, physical strength and minor sensory processing needs and minor reflex integration work. 

     

    Bootcamps are designed to provide intensive input to help a child turn a corner.  Typically done after a period of traditional O.T. or when you feel he/she just needs a 'boost'. 

    Our Cellfield Reading Intervention is one of our specialty Bootcamp programs designed for students with Reading Disorders, poor spellers, or have attention and executive function difficulties.

    Intensives can focus on sensory processing, reflex integration, reading, writing, or listening skills

    Intensives can be done as a stand alone program or in conjunction with our Tomatis Listening Program, our Cellfield Reading Program, or our O.T. bodywork.

    Repeat intensives periodically for great gains (or as required for certain programs like the Tomatis Method). 

    Make gains faster!  It is worth skipping other activities for a couple weeks.  Our work supports all other learning efforts.

    As therapists we believe that exposure to sensory play, movement and language should start early especially if a child is struggling to meet their early milestones.  We have developed a fun inclusion playgroup for children with and without special needs (and their caregiver) who may or may not attend a traditional preschool. 

     

    During our program, the children will also participate in collaborative play and movement with typical peers while receiving the assistance they needs to be most successful.

    Handwriting is becoming a forgotten art, yet is a necessity of life. Few schools are actually teaching manuscript and almost none are teaching cursive, yet it is proven to be a great and important kinesthetic tool for learning. 

    We teach handwriting from a neurodevelopmental approach. Working on the underlying strength and bilateral coordination that is needed to not only write every letter of the alphabet neatly, but to come up with an organized thoughtful written response

    *For fine tuning, not in place of O.T. sessions in most cases

    Self-regulation is tested in all of us every day, but for many students the smallest thing can cause a meltdown or social upset.  In our social skills groups we teach self-regulation including how to control one's body in a group setting, how to modulate one's voice according to the setting, and how to express one's emotions without drama.  

     

    Our approach is group-oriented, body-oriented and neurodevelopmental.  In addition to participating in physical activities and exercises, our student play collaborative games, listen to and tell stories that represent every day life and social skills and develop group or partner projects as a means of putting their social skills into action. 

Mighty Minds and Muscles is a boutique therapy and coaching organization.

Our approach is thorough and progressive;

we are not just a pediatric occupational therapy clinic but a family learning center. 

We offer unique internationally-developed programs that help anyone with

developmental delays, learning difficulties and those who just feel disorganized or stressed. Our team is a small group of highly trained and educated co-therapists who continually strive to learn and develop holistic programs.
