Occupational therapy at home with 5 everyday items

   Watch Promo

Having a child with special needs is difficult. Therapy. Doctors. IEPs. School conferences. Homework. Relatives.

I can help you. I've been there. I'm a parent that GETS IT!

Join Countdown Academy for a live seminar and learn how to use five (5) simple objects in your home for learning concepts and help to master new skills.

In this hands on workshop you will learn how to incorporate the things you learn from therapists and apply them to your everyday life. For example, how many ways can you use a bar of soap as a learning tool? Or... How can an empty pizza box be a tool for occupational therapy?


Each class has a different set of items. We will offer new classes over the course of the year. Help learn to think out-of-the-box and have fun while preparing your loved one on their Countdown To K!.
