Common Reasons for Therapy
We believe every child can reach their maximum potential when provided with the right tools. We are a multidisciplinary team who want to provide a variety of tools that will make a difference in the lives of children who are impacted by a variety of concerns and challenges.
Fine motor skills (FM) encompass everything we do with our hands and fingers, including handwriting. Children having FM issues may struggle with muscle strength in their hands and fingers, have difficulties with making quick and precise movements or planning out the movement in their brains.
Gross Motor Skills
Gross motor skills (GM) help children to stabilize or move their bodies. Children struggling with GM skills may be challenged in moving their body with control and intention, experience physical discomfort within their bodies, or may need to improve their posture or motor skills.
Articulation is the formation of clear and distinct sounds in speech. Children might struggle with sounds and putting sounds together into words. Other terms used for these challenges are articulation or phonological disorders, apraxia of speech, or dysarthria.
Language and Literacy
Language describes how well we understand what we hear or read and how we use words to tell others what we are thinking. Literacy addresses how well we read and write. Children with speech and language disorders may also have trouble reading, spelling, and writing.
Our challenges with Mental Health can come in a variety of forms and affect different areas of our lives. Dealing with big emotions can be difficult and hard. Children may struggle with self harm, anger, sadness, anxiety and the behaviors that might come from those feelings.
Children who struggle with behaviour may be demonstrating behaviours that are affecting their lives at home, their families or their time at school. This can be anger outbursts, running away, very poor hygiene/hygiene avoidance, dangerous/violent behaviour etc. Behaviour isn’t just behaviour, it covers an underlining story that needs to be told so the behaviour can improve.

It is recognized that children with difficulties in one skill area often experience difficulties in other skill areas as well. It is a privilege to provide various therapies under one roof so families can receive a coordinated approach to their child’s care.
Starting on your child’s therapy journey can be confusing at times. So we’ve put together some of the most frequently asked questions to help you easily navigate your journey here at LSCTS.
What is a multidisciplinary clinic?
A multi-disciplinary clinic is a clinic that has multiple types of services all under one roof. This means that your child and family will have access to a coordinated support plan experience. Your therapists will be able to collaborate on the best practice and therapy for your child to ensure a holistic approach to address your child’s needs. Feel free to speak with your therapist about the coordination of your child’s treatment.
Do I need a medical referral to begin services?
No, you do not need a medical referral to access any of our services
Is my child too young to start therapy?
Our clinic welcomes children from birth to 18 years of age. We are passionate about children of any age, reaching their highest potential! We believe that early intervention is key! Of course, depending on the type of therapy needed, there may be suggested ages when therapy might be more successful. We are happy to answer any of your questions.
Where do I start?
It all starts with a phone call to our Administrative staff who can answer your questions and take you through our intake process. You do not need a medical referral to access any of our services. We do not have a waitlist and will schedule your child’s session on the next available appointment time.
