Occasional Family Intervention Program (OFIP)

line_diamond_black-300x15

This program is for families who…

  • Have completed a block of therapy sessions and are looking for a “tune-up” or review of their previous strategies learned OR
  • Are unable to visit the farm as often as they wish for reasons such as distance, cost, or scheduling.

Children feel more secure and do better in therapy when they have consistent appointments. If your family is having difficulty coping, it is important that you seek more frequent help in addition to the Occasional Family Intervention Program at Fiddlehead Care Farm.
