Coming to MM was honestly one of the best things we have done for our son…
“Our son was diagnosed with Autism and we wanted to give him the best step forward for his future. We heard the services Moving Mountains offered could really help him. We loved the fact that MM has a lot of the needed services offered all under one roof.
Our son has been doing different therapies for several months now. As his parents we have noticed quite the difference in him. He is much more confident in himself and there’s a lot less frustration from him when he’s not able to do something. And a huge bonus…. he’s more than willing to give whatever it may be a second go!
We would definitely recommend MM in a heart beat! It was honestly one of the best things we have done for our son. We feel like he can have a much brighter future now that he has the skills he has gained from the services at MM!”
Our son feels better understood and happier…
“We just wanted to say thank you once again for your work with our son. He has always been a fun, wonderful guy, but I think he feels better understood and happier than I remember in a really long time. He absolutely loves you and really feels empowered to have you “on his team.” We leave your office so positive and strengthened with all the strategies you give him.”
Before starting therapy our son had difficulty expressing his emotions…
“When our son was first diagnosed with Autism and ADHD we were unsure what resources were available in our community. It was important to us that he be introduced to therapy as soon as possible. We also wanted to get education and support for ourselves. We heard about MM from a couple families in the community. What stood out most for us was how many of them mentioned how great the staff were with parents but especially how wonderful they were with the kids in their care.
Before starting therapy, our son had difficulty expressing his emotions, he had frequent hands on with us and his younger brother at home. He had difficulty interacting with peers at school and had frequent hands on with them. He required many breaks from group activities at family get-togethers, and had frequent meltdowns.
Our son has been receiving therapy at MM for almost a year and for us it’s been a year of big achievements. He can tell us what emotion he is having, and what zone he is in. He can tell us what he needs to do either independently or with help from us. He is using sensory tools we have learned from the staff at MM to help calm him down if he is overstimulated. He is also learning to be more independent with dressing and using the washroom with the help of visual tools. He can tolerate group activities for an extended period of time and recently was able to spend a full five hours in the summer parks program. We did not think this would even be possible last year!
The staff at MM are extremely knowledgeable, warm and inviting. They have provided us with so many unique strategies to use at home. Our family has been supported through every stage of our journey. We recommend their services to families with similar needs.”
… a genuine desire to help me…
“My physiotherapist at Movin’ Mountains has treated me for OAB [overactive bladder]. I am very impressed with her knowledge, thoroughness and especially appreciative with her genuine desire to help me.”
It was great to be so welcomed into the sessions…
As a support worker accompanying my client it was great to be so welcomed into the sessions, work alongside the PT, and gain more information and strategies to support the clients progress. Thanks a lot!
Physiotherapy has changed my life!
“Physiotherapy has changed my life! Without it I would be in chronic pain from my pelvic floor condition. Once my PT was able to treat my condition my feelings of depression were greatly reduced, I could be the mom I wanted to be, I could exercise and work again. I can’t tell you enough how much this rehabilitation has meant to me and my family. I wish everyone knew how much having a pelvic floor assessment can change your life and address things you thought you would have to live with forever. Thank you so much for providing this service and the excellent and sensitive care that you do.”
MM is one of the greatest resources around!
Movin’ Mountains is one of the greatest resources around, the 1 on 1 is great! Thank you to each and everyone of you.
I finally feel like we have a solid, professional, knowledgeable TEAM that can work together to help him with all his struggles…
“My son receives SLP and OT with MM and the differences I have noticed with him in the short period of time we’ve been attending is so encouraging. The team is wonderful. So easy to talk to, they explain everything in a manner that makes it easy for us to understand what is going on, as well as explain how we can apply strategies at home and in school to continue his success. I finally feel like we have a solid, professional, knowledgeable TEAM that can work together to help him with all his struggles!”
Celebrating small victories has given us inspiration…
“My family has benefited so greatly from the services provided by the therapists at Movin’ Mountains. Both our OT and PT have been exceptional with providing attainable goals for my child, and helping to set goals to strive towards. Celebrating small victories has given us the inspiration that anything and I mean anything is possible! From the play area to the bins of sensory toys, everyone who needs support should check out the services offered by MM!
Two amazing women turned their vision into a reality and created a centre where people can come to get support with so many different things. Thanks for turning your vision into a reality we all get to be a part of! I would recommend MM to help you and your child move mountains.”
Your team continues to think outside the box…
“As a mom of a child with sensory challenges, I can’t thank you and your team enough for thinking outside the box and providing a sensory friendly movie for our community. You guys continue to think outside the box, and provide all of these excellent resources and events for our kids! For a small town like Trail to have such an amazing group of professionals makes me feel so blessed and grateful, and because of that, I say thank you!”
