Collaboration with outside health professionals and educators
Workshops and information sessions
At Achieve Therapy Centre we are clinicians with a special focus in paediatrics that take a family centered approach to help your child achieve his/her full potential. Parents and caregivers play a major role in our sessions.
Whether you are interested in one of our therapy services or in a joint OT/SLP approach to treatment, the clinicians at Achieve Therapy Centre will tailor a program based on individual strengths and needs. Please contact us for further information.
Achieve Therapy Centre was founded in 2009 by Nathalie Mabon and Krista Simon. From the beginning the importance of a joint speech-language/occupational therapy approach was embraced at Achieve. We are equipped with a dedicated sensory gym that engages a child’s language and body through movement. Our therapists continue to expand their education and knowledge base and will use the proper tools and techniques to best treat your child.
Through the years we have had the privilege of working with families not only in a joint SLP/OT model but also in individual occupational and speech-language therapy dependent on the needs of the child. We have had the opportunity to expand our team to allow Achieve to treat more children and work with more families. We are currently accepting new clients for occupational therapy, speech-language pathology and joint therapy.
