Clinical Services

We offer a flexible interdisciplinary system of care that focuses on making sure your child is receiving the right services to best address their unique needs.

Each client has access to hands-on therapy from a behaviour consultant, speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, and behavioural interventionists. The level of service from each discipline can be tailored to fit your child’s needs and your family’s goals.

Our services are not diagnostic dependent and will never end due to your child reaching a certain age.

Occupational therapists are dedicated to helping children develop all of the abilities they need for the many occupations of childhood, including playing with friends, being a student, helping at home, eating, getting dressed, and participating in hobbies and sports.
