Banah Okasha

I have a passion for working with children and have done so for over 12 years. I have experience in the pediatric OT setting working with children who have fine motor and gross motor delays, sensory processing disorder, autism, ADHD, visual motor and perceptual difficulties, and developmental delays. After receiving my bachelor's degree in Occupational Therapy from Jordan University of Science and Technology, I obtained certification in Sensory Integration from University of South California/ Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy. I have also completed an Applied Behavioral Analysis training course administered by Certified BCBA, Functional Learning Centre, Vancouver. Merging between therapy approaches and educational techniques has helped with achieving better therapy outcomes.
