The occupational therapist is a health professional who evaluates functional skills and the effects of a person’s physical and mental health problems on multiple body functions. He/she intervenes on behalf of individuals of all ages, focusing on whatever important activities will assist the person in attaining the optimal level of autonomy to accomplish daily tasks, (ex: play, leisure activities, dressing, socialization, etc.). Thus, the activity is at the core of occupational therapy; it constitutes the prime focus of expertise and the preferred method of therapy. The occupational therapist works on the development, maintenance and improvement of the person’s physical or mental capacity, with the aim of promoting individual autonomy, thereby enabling a satisfactory quality of life within the social milieu and integration within the wider community.
Occupational therapy practices focus on prevention, stimulation, rehabilitation or compensation.

“Our child has been attending Clinique Proaction for almost 9 months. We have appreciated Heba Kalakeche’s honesty, encouragement and continuous efforts to help our child reach his goals. Her ability to teach speech therapy in both English & French languages was a plus factor for our child. We thank you sincerely.”
When we initially contacted the clinic they were very thorough and requested copies of all his medical reports as well as previous speech therapy evaluations. Heba was punctual and prepared for every session. She exhibited tremendous patience and skill when working through the exercises with [our son] Matteo. Heba took the time to inform herself about what was going in Matteo’s life and trained us on how best to work on developing his speech at home. Overall we were extremely pleased with the clinic and the expertise of Heba.”
