Hi, I’m Bec!

I graduated from Edith Cowan University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science (Occupational Therapy) First Class Honours. I have always had a passion for working with a paediatric population, and whilst completing my studies I was fortunate enough to be a part of some of the holiday fun programs and school screenings with KZ Speech.

Through my university practicums I gained valuable experience working with both children and their families. After completing my 4th year paediatric placement I discovered the benefits of working in a family-centred and holistic manner helping to increase children’s independence, happiness and safety engaging in everyday activities. I enjoy incorporating my love of being creative in my sessions with my clients, and getting to know all about my client’s passions and incorporating these into our work together. I’m always inspired by the children and families I meet, and enjoy being part of their journey.

I am especially interested in and passionate about working with children with autism, sensory processing and regulatory challenges, motor problems such as DCD, and attentional problems.  I enjoyed helping children engage in and build on their play skills, taking a play based learning approach into every session. I am trained to assess and treat children with feeding difficulties using the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) Approach to feeding. This approach integrates posture, sensory, motor, behavioural/learning, medical and nutritional factors to evaluate and manage children with feeding problems.
