The Caterpillar Process
Six Weeks of Work, One Week of Rest
Caterpillars enter the world on a quest for the best ways to grow, using their whole bodies to explore. They rest inside their cocoons to transform into beautiful butterflies, ready to fly. We took inspiration from them to design our therapy framework. We believe in working, playing, and resting - balance.
Caterpillars are made of segments, each connected to the next. They move their bodies just an inch at a time, and they can go far.
Our therapeutic framework consists of segments of therapy, with connections in between.
Throughout the year, we complete 6 segments of therapy, each for 6 weeks at a time.
Between each segment is one week which we call the Connection Week. This time is reserved for resting and connecting. It allows for the therapy from the previous segment to sink in, and it reduces the burnout of our families and children, who sometimes become overwhelmed.
