Abeer Kanaan

Pediatric Occupational and Sensory Integration Therapist


Abeer received her Bachelor’s degree in Occupational Therapy from the Hashemite University, Jordan in 2015. She is a DHA licensed Occupational Therapist and has worked with children since graduating.

Abeer has a special interest in sensory processing disorders and has completed her Sensory Integration Qualification through the University of Southern California becoming a Certified Sensory Integration Therapist in 2019. In addition, Abeer has post-graduate training in ‘Handwriting without Tears’ and has acquired training in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), as a board certified autism technician in 2016.

Abeer values collaboration, and encourages participation of parents and teachers to support her clients’ success at home and school. She believes that therapy is most successful when it is fun. She has worked with a variety of developmental challenges in children such as developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD/ADD, cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome, gross and fine motor delays, visual-motor integration, and sensory processing challenges.

In her free time, she likes to travel and practice horse riding which she believes can provide children with autism with an opportunity to improve their motor skills, social-emotional skills and sensory regulation.
