The School Age Therapy Program provides assessment and intervention for children & youth (ages 5 to 19) with physical and cognitive limitations.
Our Vision and Mission
Our Vision: Healthy and empowered children, youth and families actively participating in their communities
Our Mission: We will use a collaborative, family-centred and interdisciplinary approach to optimize health and autonomy and promote inclusive communities
Where we provide services
We provide service in a variety of settings: at school, at home, in the community or at the Queen Alexandra Centre for Children’s Health.
This is made possible through contracts with the Victoria, Sooke and Saanich School Districts and some private/independent schools, and through funding from the Ministry for Children and Family Development.
About our services
Occupational Therapists (OT)
Support students, working with school personnel and families, in achieving the student’s functional goals in the areas of self-care, productivity and leisure.
School based Physiotherapists (PT)
Support students, staff and families to enable the student to achieve optimal mobility and participation at home, school, and in the community. PTs evaluate how a student’s ability to function in school is influenced by his/her physical status and by environmental factors at home, school, or in the community.
Service to Private or Independent Schools
Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech Therapy can be arranged for students with complex physical challenges depending upon availability of staff. A revenue agreement will be established with the school administrator for services provided.
