Welcome to Empowering Steps Movement Therapy (ESMT)

Empowering Steps Movement Therapy (ESMT) is a 1:1 non-categorical motor intervention program for children living with neurodevelopmental disabilities. It takes place in a fun, inclusive and supportive gymnastics and aquatic environment that promotes physical literacy and goal attainment.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a nurturing and inclusive environment, allowing every child to achieve their fullest potential. 

The Empowering Steps programs offers a wide range of services including one-on-one therapy, camp experience, drop in sessions, group classes, and special events.

Empowering Steps is a research based program incorporating structured assessments of each child's development.

Currently we are sponsored by CKNW Orphans' Fund, Coquitlam Foundation (Symington Endowment Fund), and our not-for-profit society, the Tri-City Movement Therapy Society. We've also received research funding from the Provincial Government's 2010 Legacies Now program. To support this program donations are accepted through the Symington Endowment Fund
