Melissa loves working with children of all ages and conditions and takes a special interest in autism, DCD, ADHD, ADD, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, complex medical conditions, as well as infant motor development. 

She believes each child is here to teach us something and loves that she can help our next generation thrive. Her proactive approach during her treatments creates the most suitable, personalized and fun environment to suit the child’s needs.
