When to consult a qualified professional about pediatric concerns.

Being a child is not all fun and games. Childhood has its setbacks too. The challenge for parents is knowing whether such setbacks are a normal passing phase, or an indication of a pediatric concern. At Canoe Therapy, we take the stance that parents should trust their instincts. If your child is struggling to reach their full potential and executing daily activities, you should seek a consultation with a qualified pediatric expert. Canoe Therapy is one of the few clinics in Canada to offer therapeutic expertise encompassing all major pediatric concerns, including:
