About Abilities Neurological Rehabilitation

Working as a therapist with children and adults with neurological challenges is hard stuff but it can also be very rewarding. I think a lot of us joined this field because we wanted to help. We are trained in the art and science of our profession, but often the business of what we do can get in the way of working the way we want to practice. Practicing – 

You went into this profession to help people...

but the current healthcare system can sometimes get in the way. Public facilities can offer great security, but rigid rules and massive workloads makes it difficult to work the way you want. Private practice can offer autonomy, but going it on your own can be tough. You didn’t go into healthcare to be chasing for payments, especially in tough financial times. We offer a better way - the support of a multidisciplinary team with the flexibility and autonomy of private practice.

Who We Are:

We are Abilities – a team of speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, clinical assistants, and administration on a mission.

A Better Approach to Rehabilitation

Client Directed

We believe in a client directed experience. We listen to our client’s challenges, and let their goals guide our plan for treatment. We once created a mock airplane interior for a client that was planning a big trip, and wanted to practice walking to his seat.

Research-Driven

Everything we do is informed by our study of neuroplasticity—the brain’s amazing ability to grow, adapt and learn. This reality is what makes us hopeful, motivated and relentless in our treatment. We never settle. We’re constantly testing new treatments, learning new techniques and finding new systems and environments to overcome our client’s challenges.

Team Based

We collaborate, we share information and learnings, and we support each other. We’ve learned that no one person has all the answers, and so we have developed a culture of collaboration and mentorship. Everyone, no matter how long they’ve been in their respective field, can learn or share something new with the rest of the team.
