Early Intervention Physiotherapy Program

About the Physiotherapy Program

The physiotherapist provides therapeutic intervention to promote the development of movement (motor) skills since early movement skills are the building blocks for many play skills and functional abilities This intervention includes:


  • Helping infants, toddlers and preschoolers achieve typical motor milestones e.g. playing on their tummy, rolling, crawling, walking, and later milestones such as running, jumping, and balancing skills
  • Looking at posture and body alignment– sometimes specific muscle groups need to be strengthened or stretched or advice required on a certain type of footwear
  • Working on improving physical abilities and play skills, balance, coordination, strength and endurance
  • Preventing, overcoming or minimizing physical problems

How does it work?

  • The physiotherapist works with families, caregivers and other team members when necessary
  • Being client centered, individual goals are set with the family for each child
  • The service is confidential so parents are in control of where information is shared and to whom reports are sent
  • Services are provided at the CDC, in the family home or at community Childcare Centres
