Laura GoldenbergOccupational Therapist
Laura Goldenberg has been working as a registered Occupational Therapist for over 15 years. She is a graduate of the school of Medical Rehabilitation, Occupational Therapy from the University of Manitoba, and has received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Winnipeg.
She has also furthered her education by taking six different courses in Sensory Integration and Sensory Processing.
Her specialities are in working with children following their development from early childhood to being young adults. She also has particular expertise in working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Global Developmental Delay, Down syndrome, Muscular Dystrophies, Learning Disabilities, Motor Delay, Sensory Integration Disorder, Spina Bifida, and William Syndrome.
Laura knows that each family is different and has unique requirements and capabilities. Her client-centred approach ensures that the needs of each family are satisfied, whether it be in customizing home modifications and skills or collaborating with a team in other disciplines.
In fact, Laura frequently works with Physical therapists, Speech Language Therapists, Behaviour therapists, MDs, teachers, and home health care workers to ensure each client gets the best outcome.
“In my youth used to work as a camp counsellor and later as a camp director. These camps integrated children with disabilities into their programs. Seeing those children succeed in the mainstream is what inspired me to pursue Occupational Therapy. My most important accomplishment to date has been running summer programs like that one for teens to increase life and independence skills,” said Laura. I am motivated by seeing my clients gain the skills they need to function independently.
Laura is the mother of 3 young girls who is constantly pushing and inspiring her to do better.
