Health, Movement, Wellbeing
My mission is to improve your child’s quality of life in the framework of family centered care. My goal is the satisfaction of all families. I want your children to develop a sense of competence and confidence, using a play-based approach.
Individualized therapy is essential to focus on specific activities which promote health, wellness, socialization, and participation.
