We recognize that each situation is unique.

Sometimes a family wants more support at home or in their community program. Also, school programs may require assessment or intervention services to support a child in their classroom. Our Consultation & Therapy Services allow you to design your own program by choosing from any of the services offered.

What does a Physical Therapist do?

Physical Therapists help children develop gross motor skills like sitting, walking, jumping, running, and riding a bike. They help children to be successful by offering strategies and therapy to develop strength, balance, coordination, physical fitness and /or developmental skills.

Physical Therapist’s at our Centre assess and plan to support large physical needs (e.g. sitting, walking) of children.

Consultation Services:

Consultative Services addresses concerns indirectly by providing strategies that are based on your child’s developmental abilities; family and/or school identified needs, the resources available; as well established rehabilitation practices. Our therapists can meet with you as often as you need within the school, at home, in the community or at our centre.

Therapy Services:

Therapy Services address concerns directly with your child. Our therapists will provide direct intervention to your child on a regular basis. Therapeutic treatment is more intensive than consultation. Treatment plans are based on your child’s developmental abilities, family-identified needs, and the resources in the home or community setting; as well as established rehabilitation practices.

Treatment might include:

  • developing a child’s strength, balance and flexibility
  • providing adapted equipment (e.g. special seating) to assist a child’s participation
  • altering the physical space to support a child’s independence

Assessment Services:

Physical Therapy Assessment services are available to provide information about your child’s skills and abilities.  For more information about our assessment services please click here.
