Sensation Station is pleased to offer The ExerSHINEkids BOOTCAMP PROGRAM.
In 2016, Dr. Amy Wheadon, OTD, OTR/L founded the structured, manualized ExerSHINEkids Bootcamp Program, which is now an evidence-based thematic program that uses intense physical exercise to improve strength and self regulation in children.
ExerSHINEkids Therapeutic and Recreational Bootcamps will improve core strength, balance, coordination, spatial awareness, motor planning, sensory processing skills and executive functioning skills using a uniquely designed, OT inspired, evidence based program. Weekly classes are highly structured, thematic, and adult guided to practice focus, concentration, listening skills, peer cooperation and social skills. 8 week sessions are designed by OTs and taught by the trained staff therapists and assistants. Classes are 45 minutes in length.
Each class focuses on: -strengthening exercises with focus on proper form -self regulation strategies with explanation and practice -group activities and challenges -organic support for peer cooperative skills -use of warped wall, cargo net, ninja line, rock wall and other equipment -at home practice activities -obstacle courses
Strong Kids 2 This therapeutic program is designed to promote core strengthening, motor planning and balance, building skills with accuracy and working on attention, focus and turn taking. The slower pace, additional support and smaller class size allows for more individual attention to focus on motor skill, social skill development and focus. Peers work together as a team to complete group physical challenges and obstacle courses, and of course have fun! We encourage children to find their inner strength and be proud of their accomplishments!
