Therapy Services for Children Struggling in School

Our therapists work in both private schools and regular classes to help provide early intervention and assist with handwriting difficulty, fine and gross motor skills, articulation and speech production. If these challenges are negatively impacting a child’s school life, teachers will, with the child’s parents’ approval, make application for therapy services.

The Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) then determines if the child meets the criteria for therapy. If so, CCAC will send an approval to the school and contact us at York Paediatric Therapy Services. We then arrange the approved number of one-on-one sessions either at the school, our location or an agreed-upon alternative.
