What makes KidSkills unique?
Our guiding philosophy is that adequate and early intervention can be instrumental in providing children the physical and emotional foundation to lead an effective academic and social life.
Through our commitment to the well being of children and excellence in service* we now offer several assessment and treatment options designed to meet the budget and scheduling needs of parents that are challenged by the burden of the economy and their work commitments. but require intervention to help them achieve their potential.**
Over the years KidSkills has consistently met and exceeded the expectations of parents seeking to improve their child's quality of life. Unlike other organizations and private practices in the Vancouver Lower Mainland that provide a host of services to a wide array of clients, this clinic exclusively serves children that attend regular preschool and classroom environments
* All services provided follow the highest standards of confidentiality and quality outlined by the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC)
