Children thrive when they feel they can do things for themselves. Learning to look after yourself, manage behaviour, learn new things, make friends and get along with others are all important part of childhood development.
Some children need additional support to learn these skills or to learn different ways to achieve their independence taking into consideration their abilities and challenges.
Our therapists work with children and families to grow their independence including physical skill development, speech support, social skills or assistance with managing behaviours. Our therapists may also suggest assistive technology or devices that help a child do activities more independently and help them participate in the activities that are important to them.
