Physiotherapy - Children's Rehabilitation Services

Physiotherapy services help children and their families with development and movement, so they can participate in activities that are important to them. Services provided are related to (neuro)developmental and/or medical conditions.

Services support the development of children and youth to participate in meaningful activities of daily life at home and in the community. We want to understand what's important to your child and family. Services are goal-driven; starting and continuing services is based on having functional reasons / goals for rehabilitation. Therapists will work with parents to provide the tools and strategies to apply in the context of their home and life. Therapy may look like 'play', depending on your child's age. We will work together so you and your child are supported to move to the next developmental stage or between providers and services. Services may be provided in groups or one to one by phone, Zoom and/or in-person sessions.
