Thrill Seekers for Success Clubs (Ninja Warrior and Revolutionaries Clubs)

Many carers tire of their young person resisting going to therapy. Therefore we strive to make our therapy programs fun, engaging and practical so that young people voluntarily want to attend. Skills covered include social, emotional, physical, sensory and cognitive skills in a motivating and meaningful environment.

Why attend?

Young people are more likely to learn when they are motivated and interested in what they are doing. In addition some young people learn best through hands-on experiential learning. Our thrill Seekers Clubs provide an active, fun, and supportive atmosphere to learn social, emotional, sensory, or physical skills.

How does it work?

Thrill Seekers Clubs are one hour sessions facilitated by an Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, Exercise Physiologist or Allied Health Assistants/Therapy Assistants using DIR Floortime therapy and other modes of therapy and encompass:

Ninja Warrior Club.
