Frequently Asked questions
What is FUNctional Physical Therapy?
All our clinicians and therapists share the same goal for your child: to create possibilities where there are obstacles and challenges.
Our bright, welcoming clinic space offers room for moving and gross motor/sensory experiences. It is appropriate for toddlers all the way to teens! We have a collection of specialized equipment and toys to make sessions FUN and customized. We are honoured to share space within the Family Connection Centre in Stony Plain. The space is wheelchair accessible. Focusing on pediatric interventions, we offer a variety of programs from individual assessment, treatment, consultation, and group programming.

Who will be helping me?
Physical Therapy (PT)
Physical Therapists are “The Movement Specialists.” We help increase gross motor skills (torso, legs, and arm movement), balance and coordination, and strength building. We help kids grow in independence and confidence moving about in their day to day spaces.
Occupational Therapy (OT)
Our occupational therapists help children grow in their comfort and ability to perform everyday tasks and activities, like getting dressed, eating, doing school work, participating in sports and social interactions.
Speech Language Pathology (SLP)
Speech Language Pathologists enable children to overcome and grow in a wide variety of language-based skills, like articulation, pronunciation, expression, comprehension, literacy, problem solving, stuttering, and even swallowing.
Our behavioural consultants work with children and families in developing new skills, strategies, tools, and self confidence to overcome the challenges and obstacles that often lead to behavioural issues. We help restore harmony in homes.
Developmental Psychology – Positive Behaviour Plan
Developmental Psychologists help with the changes in mental, emotional, and social environments that children encounter as they develop and grow. They work with cognitive skills, emotions, language, personality, reasoning, self-awareness, learning disabilities and challenges.
