Paula Aquilla OT Toronto Building Bridges Sensory Osteopathy

Paula Aquilla, OT Reg. (Ont.) & Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

Aquilla Occupational Therapy Services is a private practice that was established in 1990 located in the heart of Toronto.  We service children, young adults and their families at our clinic, in home, in schools and in the community.We are proud to support children with a variety of diagnoses in our practice. 


Children from 0-18 years are seen for assessment, consultation, education, and treatment.  Childhood is a time of significant growth and development. Challenges affecting development can have a significant impact on the child’s ability to complete daily activities at home, school or on the playground. AOTS is a family driven practice.  We value and invite the input of the child and the family into the plan for treatment.  We build the therapy around the needs of your child and your family.
