Our priority is the health and safety of everyone.
Ontario is actively working to contain the spread of COVID-19. Our clinicians have received strong direction from their respective colleges as well as the government to ensure the safety of every client. kidsTHERAPY continues to offer telehealth services as well as in person appointments.
Your child’s clinician will be our primary point of contact and ask if you have any questions or concerns to discuss these with them.
Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time and we wish you all safe and healthy passage through this period.
One of our associates, Nicole Raftis, OT Reg.(Ont.) has put together the following resource review for coping with the uncertainty and anxiety of these times: A message from your friendly neighborhood OT
A network of dedicated professionals enhancing potential, empowering families and building communities
Bell Therapy was established in 1998, a private occupational therapy practice centered out of Elizabeth’s home in Guelph while she raised her young family. She expanded her services to Norfolk Street in Guelph in 2006, joining with Norfolk Psychological Services. KidsTHERAPY Network was established in 2009, reflecting a change in philosophy of practice; a two year planning endeavor. The name KidsTHERAPY Network expands the idea of community service and linking professionals towards a common goal. KidsTHERAPY Network then moved to its current location on Woodlawn Road West to establish a private clinic in order to better provide services and allow for camps and group sessions.

This weekly group provides great benefits for those kids working on the gross motor skills that are the building blocks for fine motor development. This group is also dedicated to providing techniques to self-soothe when feeling dysregulated and to cope with our emotions. Further benefits of yoga include improved concentration and body awareness. Kids will follow along with gentle movements and get an opportunity to use massage therapy balls.
This group implements Handwriting Without Tears techniques and sensory strategies for kids of all abilities to practice and enhance print writing. Each weekly club meeting begins with fine motor and/or gross motor activities and games. We will play with letters using a multisensory approach, including singing and dancing! Then, we will put together all we’ve learned on paper! Recommendations for home practice will also be planned with families.
Join us for a week long camp focused on fine motor skills! We will practice print and cursive writing as well as engage in hand strengthening and coordination activities with Gardening.
Did you know that writing in cursive can assist with the brain’s development of learning and memory? When we have our writing skills mastered, we can attend to learning new information with more success! This group is great for kids both beginning to learn and needing a refresher in cursive writing. Handwriting Without Tears techniques and a multisensory approach will be enlisted to practice connecting those loops and curls for creating a signature and legible writing! Recommendations for home practice will also be planned with families.
