We are a group of experienced, caring, professional Occupational Therapists working in the Ottawa, Ontario area. We believe every child can achieve their full potential with a little help and just the right guidance.
Whether we are helping your child develop foundation motor skills, build on feeding skill development, expand their food repertoire, develop emotional regulation skills, gain executive function skills, or strengthen motor planning, we will do this in a manner that focuses on relationship-building first. Your infant, preschooler or young child will best develop in an environment of trust, connection and respect.

About Our Facility
Our home-based clinic is located just South of Bank Street and Albion Road in South-Central Ottawa. Children work best in situations that are as close to their natural settings as possible. With the clinic located in a home, it has less of a ‘medical’ atmosphere. It has sensory rich activities and equipment to promote sensorimotor development and facilitation of an optimal level of arousal for skill building.
Depending on the physical requirements and parents’ schedules, children can also be treated in their own homes, schools, daycares, ABA centres and preschools located across the City of Ottawa and in neighbouring geographic zones.
Virtual Therapy is available as an option for clients across the province of Ontario.
