Early intervention can help achieve motor milestones. Book an package of three physiotherapy sessions to assess and review your baby’s gross motor skills during their first year. Session at 3 months, 6 months and 9 months. Receive play activities and advice to get your little one on the move.
It is such a great help that Ali can visit your house to do an evaluation, as opposed to driving your child to a doctor's office. We really enjoyed her visit! She was very professional and kind and managed to engage my son in order to conduct evaluation (which is not not easy) Overall, a great experience.
Erin was great and I will recommend her to any of my friends who might need a physio for their littles ones. Her detailed report and recommendation for our 2 month old baby boy were very reassuring and helpful. I couldn't expect a better service.
