Summer Boost Program

Every summer, Good Shepherd Pediatrics offers an intensive short course of outpatient pediatric physical, occupational and speech therapy. Children receive four to eight weeks of therapy, two to three times a week, to boost their gross and fine motor skills or speech skills.

Who is eligible to participate?

  • Children ages newborn to 21, particularly those who are receiving school-based services that have been interrupted for the summer
  • Those who do not meet the 25 percent delay criteria for early intervention
  • Children who need extra strength, coordination, balance or language assistance (including those with Spanish as a primary language)

An individualized treatment plan is developed for each child depending on his or her age and needs. Children with the following diagnoses can benefit from this program:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down’s syndrome
  • Hypotonia/low tone
  • Developmental delay
  • Autism

The Summer Boost Program is offered at several outpatient therapy locations.
