About Us

At Whole Child Therapy Services we specialize in neurodiversity-affirming, and child-led approach to supporting children and their families. Careful consideration of each child's strengths, interests, and play & learning preferences allows our team to ensure our therapy sessions are meaningful and interactive. We strive to support children to be intrinsically motivated to communicate in a variety of manners with those around them.

 

It is our commitment to always highlight a child's strengths and to create an environment where children and families feel safe to explore new skills, celebrate accomplishments, and to develop self-confidence.

 

Families are always invited to be active participants during our sessions. We understand the importance of empowering parents and dedicate time in each session to teach parents the skills to support their children in reaching their full potential.
