What is Con•T•GO?
Connection with others.
We believe children need friends or family in therapy, not just the therapist.
Children learn best in play with friends and family, as this helps them carryover skills into their daily lives. For this reason, our therapists always provide intervention in small groups of 2-5 people. This may be a small group of children (Con•T•GO Kids), or a group that includes your child with family members (Con•T•GO Family).
Transformation through Therapy
We believe children’s occupational therapy is transformative for families...especially when offered in the context of the natural world.
Our therapists specialize in combining OT intervention with the power of nature to accelerate your child’s progress toward goals. We listen to you to set treatment goals that truly matter to your family. Our therapy groups use the latest research in sensory integration, motor learning, and neuroscience, to be most effective in helping your child build the skills necessary for success at school, home, and life. We want to help your child and family to feel daily life is easier and more enjoyable.
We believe children need more time in nature, and nature is the perfect place for children’s occupational therapy.
Nature provides health benefits that are truly impossible to replicate in any indoor therapy setting. Mental clarity, peacefulness, attentiveness, and cardiovascular health are just a few of the benefits research has proven are offered by nature. The natural world inspires children’s internal drive to explore, challenge their bodies, be creative, and have FUN while building skills.
Indoor OT clinic spaces are full of therapy equipment: plastic balance beams, swings, tactile bins, monkey bars, rock climbing walls, foam mats, and more. In Con•T•GO groups, we balance on logs, lift large sticks and rocks to build forts, set up and ride on tree swings, play in real mud and water, climb trees and boulders, roll down hills, and more!
Best of all, your child can access nature at any time with you- no special clinic space needed- so carryover of skills to daily life happens more naturally.
