SHINE Intensive Therapy Program

The Shine (Structured High Intensity Neuromotor Episode) Program is a multi-disciplinary intensive therapy program that serves children with a variety of diagnoses aged 2-14 years. This treatment model utilizes a short burst treatment plan as an alternative to a minimal frequency, long duration therapy plan. Children are seen for 12 sessions over 4-6 weeks, depending on age and tolerance.

In 2017-2018, 14 patients were seen for individual intensive therapy and 12 patients were seen in a group format. 2 patient completed both the individual intensive therapy program and the group format. In addition to standardized assessments, pre and post assessments utilizing the Goal Attainment Scale (GAS) were completed. The GAS is a tool measuring numerical change in patient/caregiver driven functional goals using a 5 point scale paired with a written description of change. The GAS uses linear increments with (-2) representing baseline data (no progress), (-1) representing some progress, (0) representing attainment of goal, (+1) representing more progress than expected, and (+2) representing much more progress than expected.

Of 26 patients seen in 2017-2018, 298 goals were established between OT, PT, and SLT, 78 percent of the goals were met or exceeded.
