Kidz Treehouse OT is a unique holistic and comprehensive private practice, which works to offer research driven, clinically proven occupational therapy programs that are fun and vibrant for your child.
We pride ourselves in our family-centered approach, which extends to everything we do. We celebrate each child’s accomplishments,both large and small, and take a personal approach to your child’s care.
At Kidz Treehouse OT, we focus on optimizing your child’s developmental engagement and participation of either sensory, fine motor, activities of daily living, core strength, motor coordination, motor planning, visual perceptual, or handwriting activities. By using creative and adaptive methods, we aim for your child to do everyday tasks as independently as possible.
At Kidz Treehouse OT, we know the primary occupation of every child is to play. Through development of fine motor and sensory skills, your child can grow through structured play during each session. Through the use of a custom program to suit your child’s needs, we use play as a means to improve your child’s skills. Kidz Treehouse OT aims to ensure that every session is fun, successful and enjoyable by using various state of the art sensory based equipment to meet your child’s goals.
