Funner School

If I MUST get help to do better in school during the summer, don’t send me to boring Summer School, send me to FUNNER School, where learning is FUN!

Because it’s Summer we ratchet up the Fun Factor. This intensive is run with a camp-like atmosphere. It’s sneaky therapy! The kids think they are at a fun summer camp, while they are having individualized brain-training interventions to increase academic success.

As with all programming at TheraPeeds Family Center, the Funner School program follows the principles of neural plasticity and the H.O.P.E model. Funner school is a brain-based program that focuses on facilitating the creation of new neuronal pathways by training the child intensively for 5 weeks to improve processing in a specified, focused area of the brain. To do so we offer two levels of programming: Build-Up and Recharge Programs.

Build-Up Program

This level of the program focuses on increasing neural pathways at the high levels of the upper brain stem to the midbrain areas. All clients entering this program must be evaluated to determine if there is a breakdown in processing in this area.

This program includes:

  • Sensorimotor therapeutic activities
  • Auditory processing training
  • Cognitive-educational training focusing on an identified weak subject area

The expected goals for this program are:

  • Improvements in academic skills: Math, Reading or Writing
  • Improvements in SM (Sensory Motor) development
  • Improvements in sub-cortical Auditory Processing
  • Improvements in self-esteem
  • Improvements in group dynamics

Recharge Program

This level of the program focuses on increasing neural pathways at the high levels of the midbrain to the cortex. All clients entering this program must be evaluated. Programming focuses on sharpening the underlying cognitive skills necessary for higher level academic development and Speech and language skills (Pragmatics).

The expected goals for this program are:

  • Improvements in cognitive skills:
    • Sustained Attention
    • Working memory
    • Long term memory
    • Processing speed
    • Logic & reasoning
    • Auditory memory
    • Visual processing
  • Improvements in social/pragmatics skills
  • Improvements in group dynamics

Summer Fun Components

  • Pool
  • Water parks 
  • Dance
  • Music
  • Bowling and more ….

Limited spots and times available for this brain changing, highly successful program. Students must be evaluated to determine the level of brain function for eligibility into this program. It is NOT open enrollment.
