ABOUT

I am passionate and determined to create opportunities for people with blindness and low vision to meet their goals for independence.

I do this by:

  • developing high quality, collaborative, and inclusive orientation and mobility training and interventions,

  • providing assessments and interventions for children with cerebral/cortical vision impairment (CVI), and

  • working collaboratively with individuals, families, therapists, and education professionals to implement effective interventions.

 

Independent Pathways is based in Melbourne, Victoria. I provide orientation and mobility (O&M) and CVI assessment and intervention, which generally takes place in your home or local community setting. Services can be funded through NDIS if you are self-managed or have a plan manager. Private fees can also be negotiated for individuals who do not receive funding.

Interstate appointments can be arranged, as well as online consultations via FaceTime, Skype or Zoom.

My work is guided by the quality framework of the Orientation & Mobility Association of Australasia (OMAA).

I am an Orientation & Mobility (O&M) specialist with over 30 years experience in service provision to adults and children in Australia and the United Kingdom.  My specialities include expertise in the provision of early intervention O&M to young children, and experience in working with children with cortical vision impairment (CVI).

 

My passion for working with children led to me completing a Doctor of Education in early intervention (O&M) through the University of Sydney. I am a co-founder of CVI Community Australia.
