Who Do We Serve?
The Early Intervention Program serves children from birth to 5 years of age who have physical, neurological, intellectual or developmental disabilities and reside in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, or on the North Shore.
How Do We Work?
Our Early Intervention Program is made up of physiotherapists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and social workers who work collaboratively to provide screening, assessment, and intervention services to children with diverse abilities. Our services focus on the six F-words in childhood disability: function, family, fitness, friends, fun and future. Our goal is to help children and families be successful in daily routines and to maximize their participation at home and in the communities where they live and play.
Why is Physiotherapy Important?
Early physiotherapy management of motor development and mobility challenges produces long-term positive impacts on health and enables the child to increase their independence.
Who Are We?
The physiotherapists who work at the BC Centre for Ability are registered healthcare professionals who are licensed to practice in British Columbia and hold either a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree from an accredited university program
