Therapize Programs and Events
Quiet Visits With Santa
Therapize has created a soothing experience where children with sensory issues get to take part in a holiday tradition. These kids could never endure the loud noises and crowds of a mall or other public setting. In seven years we have hosted more than 230 children in what has already become a Wilmington holiday tradition.
Music with Arndt
In a Therapize supported event, Parents and children of all abilities can make sweet music together!
We team up with our friends at Soccer Shots each year to fund a series of classes. We believe that sports belong to everyone and that each child should know the thrill of succeeding in competition.
Each year, Therapize teams up with Carolina Canines and introduces their dogs to our kids. There is something about the bond between animals and children. Children, who oftentimes have a hard time connecting with humans, will open up to something fluffy and furry if it’s sitting on their lap. Many of the children who showed up came armed with a book and read a story to their new friends.
Haircuts and Hayrides
This event takes place on a farm. We try to schedule this event around the start of the School Year. Local hairstylists volunteer to come out on a Saturday to trim the heads of children who cannot sit in a traditional setting.
Chance to Dance
Pink Slipper Academy hosts monthly dance classes in The Hive at the Clinic. These are Adaptive ballet classes for individuals with varying special needs.
