Frequently Asked Questions


What kind of child needs Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapists work with a wide range of children and families for various needs. We can support children to reach goals related to self/co-regulation, school-readiness, sensory processing, managing emotions and behaviours, executive functioning skills, living skills and more. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions and to help find the best provider for your child!

Is Physiotherapy right for my child?

Any child that is having difficulty with movement at any stage in their development could benefit from Physiotherapy. This could include children with specific diagnoses such as Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Down Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy and other conditions, or children with no diagnoses, just requiring some extra support and time spent moving.

Is Physiotherapy beneficial for children?

Any type of movement is great for everyone, children and adults alike. Working to make movements easier and smoother is always beneficial to decrease pain and improve quality of life. With children, we make sure all sessions are positive and fun, using play to motivate movements and “exercises.”

Will my insurance cover appointments?
