The early years are a time of growth and learning. From infancy and through the toddler years children are learning so many new skills including sitting, crawling, talking, walking and feeding themselves. These are all important and exciting milestones to achieve their independence. Pre-schoolers are also learning to use the toilet, dress themselves and play with others.
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 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.
