Testimonials for Our Team
Few issues are more critical for students in today’s classroom than social-emotional learning and strategies of self-regulation. Whether she’s teaching a room full of middle school educators or a gymnasium full of middle schoolers, Meike Vareschi is adept at making the latest research in these areas accessible and applicable for learners of all ages. As a parent, teacher, and administrator, Meike has given me the frameworks, understanding, and vocabulary to engage more helpfully with children in my care, and I am grateful for her work.

“My 8 yr old son with ASD has been seeing the OTs at WonderKids for over five years in support of his anxiety, sensory sensitivities and emotional regulation. OT at WonderKids has been foundational to his growing physical and emotional confidence, to his increased physical strength and coordination and to his overall flexibility. The therapists we’ve worked with have all be highly skilled and very attuned to building a secure and solid attachment with my son. They have also been very aware and respectful of my needs as a parent to a child with special needs. Both my son and I look forward to OT each week!”
“Meike Vareschi as well as other team members with WonderKids OT have been my son’s Paediatric Occupational Therapist for 4.5 years. I consider Meike one of my angels on earth. The connection and breakthroughs she has been able to achieve with and for my son Kyle have been nothing short of miraculous. She is kind, considerate, extremely knowledgeable and very professional. Meike and her team at Wonderkids OT have created a warm, inviting, nurturing and friendly clinical environment. They should pride themselves on providing a first class family centred practise that is supportive and understanding of ALL family members and care providers. They have certainly met and exceeded the needs of my family.”
“Meike is an amazing occupational therapist and a wonderful support to our family in dealing with the difficulties and challenges we face on a daily basis. Meike’s work with our daughter, who has multiple medical issues/diagnosis’, has been life-changing. Our daughter has made significant progress which has given her the benefit of experiencing aspects of childhood she previously could not experience given her issues and challenges. Meike’s professional and caring demeanor toward our daughter makes every visit an enjoyable, yet therapeutic one. Wonderkids OT is truly an invaluable therapy resource!”

“Courtney has been very helpful to our son. We are seeing significant improvements in him since we started with Wonderkids almost one year ago. She also offers invaluable advice, time, feedback and helped school staff preparing his learning plan. Whenever we are unsure of other therapy related issues and if we needed any additional help she is always is there. Courtney and the staff at Wonderkids are very approachable we trust them and can recommend with confidence to parents who want to see their kids improve. Many thanks Courtney :)”

“My Son, 7 Years old, classic Autism with ADHD and sensory processing disorder and some degree of Depression and Anxiety. After 8 months of therapy with Courtney, his sensory problem is getting better, at least we know how to help with his needs and manage or control it. He is quite happy and relaxed during the sessions. His play skills has improved the most. While we are with Wonderkids OT, we also get help from Meike for many things such as where and how to get more funding, what kind of toys/equipment are good for my kids. I am sure no matter what your kids situation is, they sure will be helped and improved at Wonderkids OT.”
