Therapist-Led Programs

We offer Pediatric Therapist Led Group Programs in our South Surrey development Center that allow children to practice key skills and work in a social setting with their peers. Therapist-Led School Group Programs are designed for students (including home-school students) attending with a 1:1 Support Worker during the school day. Students may participate without a support worker if they can follow multi-step instructions independently.

We also offer school field trips and programs great for small to large Preschool - Primary Grade classes with options for self-led play or We Play Staff-guided visits.

Pediatric Therapist Led Group Programs can be submitted for coverage from extended benefits and/or funding sources if applicable.
