Meet Lindsey

Hi!

If this is your first time landing on this site OR if you are returning back, WELCOME. 🙂

I created this site to help kiddos (with or without special needs) reach their full potential.

Published weekly are …

  • New posts
  • Older posts updated with fresh new content
  • Free book read alouds along with downloadable storybook activities

I do this to keep things FUN and current.

Through helpful content, my goal is to provide as much value as I can to allow a child to live their best life possible. <3

My Story …


My 6 year old son and 5 year old nephew who has Cerebral Palsy (CP) have a beautiful relationship.cody-and-lenny

They are the true inspiration to why this website happened.

I’ve learned through watching my son and nephew that we are each special in our own way.

Together we have two KEY things in common …

To be loved and accepted by others.

It is that simple. 🙂

My goal is to emulate the same love and acceptance through a website that is inclusive for kids of all abilities.

Why did I name the website ‘Intensive Therapy for Kids’?


This is a common question I get asked so I’d love to share WHY this site was started. 🙂

Intensive Therapy for Kids was inspired because of the powerful results children with motor delays accomplish when receiving intensive physical therapy (like my nephew, Lenny).  

The name is meant to spread awareness about this type of physical therapy because it allows kids who experience motor delays to excel in their everyday life.

I help manage a nonprofit, The LENN Foundation, with my sister.

We help children with cerebral palsy receive this type of powerful therapy.

The results have been astounding to say the least!

Kids have taken their FIRST independent movements like walking, sitting up, and chewing.

You can’t put a price tag on the confidence and independence a child gains after receiving intensive therapy (including the tools they are given by the therapists to continue at home).

    I love what you two are doing and consider it very admirable. I think every human, no matter what disability, has the right to a good quality of life and you are helping families provide that! I do have a couple of questions. Would many of the therapies you will offer be similar to Occupational Therapy methods? I work in a school and see these being used all the time. Secondly, would any of these therapies be beneficial to children who don’t have cerebral palsy? Thanks for your great work!

      Hey Steve, Thank you so much!  Awesome questions by the way.  We don’t personally offer Occupational Therapy ourselves but we do partner with the NAPA Center who does offer a discount to families children who go through us to attend their program.  NAPA Center does combine Occupational Therapy along with intensive physical therapy and speech/language therapy depending on the child’s needs.  Each program a child goes to is customized to their individual needs and the developmental milestones they are trying to accomplish such as sitting up, rolling over, etc.  We are all about creating awareness around the benefits therapy provides to children with cerebral palsy.  We also recommend other wonderful facilities such as SMILE Therapy for Kids in Ontario, Canada and Walk This Way USA in Texas.  To answer your second question, yes most definitely these types of therapies can benefit any child who has a disability or motor delay.  We appreciate your comment!

    I salute both of you for starting a positive movement for your families and the communities. More people need to talk about childhood disorders and diseases because they are becoming common in our society. And because most young and normal kids live in their own bubbles these days, they don’t realize there are special friends out there who could use their support as well. Young people can do a lot in raising funds like drawing arts, creating DIY projects, or producing YouTube videos to get the message across and that can make a huge difference.

      Hey Cathy, Absolutely!  Thank you so much for your kind words and comment. We are all about positive change and we believe this is one step forward in continuing to create more awareness for cerebral palsy.

    Thank you so much for this highly informative article, Lindsey! Two of my closest friends have cerebral palsy, and thanks to the very intensive therapy that you speak of, one has just passed the California Bar Exam, and the other is a successful bio-engineer. It’s sad that so many people with various conditions can’t afford/don’t have access to the life-altering treatments that they need to lead the happiest, most successful lives possible. I commend you all for dedicating your lives to helping kids affected by cerebral palsy-God calls us to love and serve one another, and the two of you are doing just that. God bless you both!

      Thank you so much for the heartfelt words! We absolutely LOVE hearing warrior stories like this. Cerebral Palsy may be looked at as a disability but each person who has CP (or has been diagnosed with any disability) has so many ABILITIES. 🙂

    I almost feel silly stating the obvious: You two are amazing! What you have decided to do with your lives has such great purpose! I do have a question. My wife and I have guardianship for 3 kids. Two of them have fetal alcohol syndrome and ADHD. And one of those 2 has sensory perception disorder as well. They also suffered trauma when they were younger. They are currently 10 and 12 years of age. Would Intensive Therapy help them in any way?

    1. Lindsey Kovach

      Thank you so much for the kind words Glenn! That melts our hearts. It sounds like you have three wonderful warriors you are taking care of. Intensive therapy could be an option for them if they are experiencing motor delays. I would suggest looking into a couple programs to see if it would be a fit for their needs. Some of my top recommendations would be NAPA Center here in the United States as well as Australia (https://napacenter.org/), SMILE Therapy for Kids which is Ontario, Canada (https://smiletherapyforkids.com/), and Walk This Way in Texas (https://walkthiswaytexas.com/). Please let me know if you have any other questions. I wish you and your family many blessings with your three precious children. <3

    That is so beautiful, your heart is in the right place, keep up the good work.
    We live in an imperfect world, while many of us are moving alone sometimes we fail to realize that there are many who need help.
    Keep up the good work , your reward is at the end of the rainbow.
