The Empowering Steps Movement Therapy Program (ESMT) is a 1:1 non-categorical motor intervention program for children living with neurodevelopmental disabilities operating out of a gymnastics and aquatic facility. ESMT promotoes physical literacy and self efficacy by providing an emotionally safe and nuturing environment.
Our mission is to provide a fun, inclusive environment rich in sensory motor activities to allow neuro diverse children to feel like they belong and are welcomed.
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.
