“NOTHING WILL WORK UNLESS YOU DO.”
What To Expect At Your Visit
During our first meeting i will take the time to get to know your familie's needs and outline the ways in which i can support you to create the desired outcomes. Together we will formulate a plan of action and discuss realistic expectations and goals for your family and/or child. My professional experience and knowledge will help to get your family on track.
Having worked in the Early Intervention field for nearly 10 years, i have experience as an Educational Adviser and Key Worker. I can support you to develop the skills to incorporate therapeutic activities into everyday life and to confidently support the learning and developmental needs of your child. With a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education and a Masters of Special Needs Education, i have experience in working with children from birth to 12 years of age, both in educational settings and in a home environment. I believe in a family centred and flexible approach to collaborating with families and can work with you and your child in a variety of ways. Families can access services privately or using NDIS funding, give me a call and we can discuss your needs and how i may be able to assist you.
