Physiotherapy

Help may be needed when a child has difficulty acquiring the motor skills expected within their age range. Gross motor development, such as movement, strength, balance, coordination, and endurance are required in activities such as rolling, crawling, walking, running, jumping and ball skills. A Physiotherapist (also known as a PT) helps promote gross motor development of infants and children.

Occupational Therapy

An Occupational Therapist (also known as an OT) helps children in the development of skills that are needed in their daily activities. These activities include self-care (such as eating, swallowing, dressing, and toileting), productivity (which involves play and fine motor activities such as holding a pencil, cutting with scissors, and drawing), and leisure (such as swimming, soccer, and hockey). To address these areas an OT may provide consultation or direct therapy as well as recommend equipment or adaptations to the environment.
