What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy (OT) is the art and science of enabling people to engage in activities that are meaningful to them through evidence-based practice and clinical reasoning. To this end, I help my clients acquire the skills needed to perform their desired activities, in various settings—such as clinic, school, home, and work—by engaging the person in a playful-learning, fun, patient, motivating, relationship-based environment.


For a child or youth, such activities may include (but are not limited to):
  •  Play
  • Taking part in educational settings (preschool / daycare / school / courses)
  • Riding a bike
  • Social development and participation
  • Daily living activities—such as toileting, dressing, bathing, eating, brushing teeth, sleeping
  • Working at an after-school job (youth)
  • Leisure activities such as Scouts or Girl Guides, playing a musical instrument, or various hobbies and interests


About Limor

I am a Registered Paediatric Occupational Therapist, a member of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapy (CAOT) and of the College of Occupational Therapy of British Colombia (COTBC). I am also on the Registry of Autism Service Providers (RASP) List of the Ministry of Child & Family Development (MCFD).

I have a passion for working with children of all ages. Long before I became an Occupational Therapist, I worked as a daycare provider, and as an Educational Assistant in Victoria, which gave me a broader understanding of children and the systems they interact with.

All services are guided by the
following beliefs and principles:

All children and their caregivers are unique and valued

All children and their caregivers are welcome

Focusing on letting go of labels around behaviour and becoming curious about the function of the behaviour

Oftentimes children cannot self-regulate by themselves until later stages in life and require support, modeling and teaching from a caregiver through co-regulation

All children can benefit from play and learning

All children do their best with what they have at that moment

It takes a village to raise a child

The brain has the potential for plasticity, growth, and change at all given ages and stages

To change undesirable behaviour in your child’s repertoire, you have to model, teach and offer alternative behaviour. That process comes with time, nurture and maturity

All children try their best to do well if they can, with the right

Kids are not “just seeking attention”. They are actually seeking our presence and connection.

Having a Growth Mindset (flexible, compassionate and positive way of thinking towards self, as well as grit and willingness to work) is more important than being a fast learner

OT Services

Even the tiniest step can bring with it a huge sense of pride and accomplishment that can become the foundation for further
development and maturity for everyone. Accordingly, at Making Sense, I am happy to provide assessment, screening, consultation, and treatment to start the child’s personal journey toward independence.


The assessment may be either just an initial screening or a full assessment, depending on the needs of the child, the wishes of the parents, and the available budget.


The consultation is based on information from the caregivers of the child and my observations.


The treatment is based on the needs of the child, the established goals, and the budget.

Our family has really appreciated how knowledgeable and flexible Limor
has been while working with our child for the past 5 (maybe more?) years.
She continues to be very empathetic and supportive during Covid-19 and
has really come up with some creative ways to connect while keeping us all
safe. If you are looking for an Occupational Therapist we highly
recommend Limor Holla.
