What We Do

Mantra Living serves children of all ages in the Sea To Sky Corridor and the North Shore of Vancouver.

A child’s occupation is “playing and learning”.  Mantra Livings focus for intervention is to help children of all ages acheive independence and success in activities of daily living by offering children positive, fun activities to improve their physical, cognitive and motor skills.

Mantra Living uses a family centered approach working closely and collaboratively with families and other team members (teacher, pediatrician, physical therapist, psychologist, speech language pahtologist).

Mantra Living works on goals where it makes the most sense for our children and families.  Therapy can be provided in the home, daycare, preschool, school, community or 1:1 in a clinic setting.
