Our Team

Our staff includes speech pathologists, occupational therapists, a physiotherapist, early childhood intervention teachers and psychologists. Each member of our team are passionate about working alongside families to support them in learning new skills that will help their child develop, as well as increasing their understanding of their child’s need.

I am passionate about Bridges for Learning, not only the vision and mission of the organisation, but also the opportunity to work alongside such experienced and dedicated team members. Seeing the children and families meet their goals and develop confidence provides me with the motivation to ensure they receive the best possible service we can offer.

Bridges for learning is an inclusive work environment that encourages and fosters professional development. I love working in the group programs and observing the profound progress children make in such a short period of time, through therapy, play, social interactions and structure.
