Parents frequently ask us for specialized tutoring services.  Once a child has improved their fine motor skills or eye hand coordination or can produce legible printing and/or have established pre-reading skills, the next step is to reduce the academic gap. 

Please note that Toronto Children’s Therapy Center is not specifically endorsing a company.  We do not benefit from listing a company on our website as listings are free to the service provider.  The information is made available simply to help parents navigate services in our local community.  It is up to the parent to research and determine whether the available services are appropriate for their child.
