Debbie Hébert

D. Hebert's PortraitAssociate Professor
Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy



I have been working in the area of neurorehabilitation over the past 28 years. My position at Toronto Rehab Institute as corporate professional leader and clinical educator enables me to take on the role of clinical associate at U of T.  Most of my research relates to this area. I have a special interest in occupation following stroke and acquired brain injury. As well I am interested in interventions for people with unilateral inattention, apraxia, memory difficulties and attention challenges. My second area of interest is continuing education. I have been involved in coordinating and facilitating continuing education courses for the past 14 years at the University of Toronto in my capacity as chair of the continuing professional development committee.  I am also a member of the Faculty of Medicine, Continuing Education and Professional Development Committee and co-chair the Faculty Development Committee of this group.
