Other OT, PT, Social Work, or SLP Therapy Programs in Toronto:
Although we have an excellent and comprehensive team at the Toronto Children’s Therapy Centre, we would like to provide parents with additional options for service outside of our centre. At times for families, due to geography, or scheduling logistics we direct parents to therapists in our community.
Please note that Toronto Children’s Therapy Center is not endorsing the services of any therapist or company. We do not benefit from listing this service in any manner as listings are free. This list is simply available to ease the “search” for our families for services located in Toronto.
