Our Team

Ann Zilberbrant

My name is Ann and I am the very proud owner of P.L.AY.@LIMITLESS and a proud co-owner of AccessAbilities Therapy Clinic. I have been practicing as an Occupational Therapist for 20 years.

I obtained my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology at McGill University. I have always worked with children whether coaching gymnastics, working with Special Olympics or at day camps. I completed my Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy from The University of Western Ontario. During my time in London, I had the opportunity to work with some great researchers and was given the opportunity to become proficient in the techniques of COGNITIVE ORIENTATION TO DAILY OCCUPATIONAL PERFORMANCE (CO-OP), which allowed me to present research findings at national and international conferences and teach workshops on the topic nationally and internationally. I have published articles and book chapters with respect to participation and various conditions.

After obtaining my Master degree I worked at a pediatric developmental center and then worked at English Montreal School board since 2009. I have been working privately since 2010 in Montreal in various settings; schools, daycares, homes, and clinics.

I have three children, who have been my inspirations and driving force, to open up a space that provides a multidisciplinary environment for families. With this in mind, our amazing clinic, AccessAbilities Therapy clinic in 2019 with my colleague, friend and business partner, Keren Ritter (SLP).

As a clinician, lecturer, researcher and a consultant in the school system, I have gained valuable experience and expertise in the area of participation for children with various abilities. I completed extensive research in the area of Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP), the innovative and leading treatment approach for children with Development Coordination Disorder (DCD). I was one of the researchers looking at the CO-OP Approach for children with Asperger’s Syndrome, which was funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research Grant. I have presented at national and international conferences looking at participation for those with special needs and their families, and Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP). I am a lecturer at McGill University (Montreal, Quebec) in the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy since 2005. I have also taught numerous workshops in the area of motor development, motor coordination and CO-OP treatment approach. I have given many presentations to school, and daycares all over Montreal. Although I work with young children, older students and young adults with various abilities and diagnosis, my specialty is those who present with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).

Along with my extensive Occupational Therapy experience, I have chaired numerous committees in my local community. I also received my National Coaching Certification in Gymnastics. I am NCCP level 2 certified in gymnastics for neuro typical population and Special Olympics.

I love seeing my clients succeed and helping their families achieve their goals. Working closely with clients and their families is a goal and I love seeing it everyday.
