Mighty Minds and Muscles is a boutique therapy and coaching organization.

Our approach is thorough and progressive;

we are not just a pediatric occupational therapy clinic but a family learning center. 

We offer unique internationally-developed programs that help anyone with

developmental delays, learning difficulties and those who just feel disorganized or stressed. Our team is a small group of highly trained and educated co-therapists who continually strive to learn and develop holistic programs.

Whole child! Whole family!

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is a specialty therapy field that helps people in all areas of developmental and life skills including sensory processing, sensorimotor, perceptual motor, fine motor and gross motor, visual motor and visual perception, mental health, cognitive skills, executive function skills, behavior management, social-emotional needs and activities of daily living.

 

At Mighty Minds and Muscles, our practice is based on a neurodevelopmental approach. We strongly believe in strengthening the foundational sensory processing, neurological reflexes and visual skills that support higher level functioning tasks such as: academics, behavior, socialization and self-confidence. We believe in a team-approach including collaborating with one's school and the whole family.
