Pediatric Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy

We believe that when children (ages 0 to school age) and their families need help because of the various needs of their children:

  • support is best provided in the child’s natural environment
  • families are the decision makers in their children’s care
  • families set the goals for their children and are essential in meeting them
  • our services work best when family members are full participants in therapy
