Childcare and Kindergarten Information Sessions: "An Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder"


In 2018, Fabic’s speech pathologist, Kathryn Maroney, will be offering complementary 40-60 minute information sessions for kindergartens and childcare centers on the Gold Coast as well as in Brisbane on ‘An introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder.’


These presentations can be customised to suit the needs of the particular center. Other topics can be arranged in consultation with Kathryn, alternative topics can also be arranged in consultation with Kathryn.

Presentations can be arranged for center staff, for groups of parents or both. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions and speak 1:1 with Kathryn after the presentation.

About Kathryn

Over many years of practice, Kathryn has found that people who struggle to communicate, do so because there is something in the way of them accessing their true ability to express. Kathryn addresses communication and social skill difficulties by supporting people to draw out their true potential for expression first and then refining as needed from there. A pioneering approach to the practice of speech pathology that combines contemporary tools of this profession with connection, building relationships and the understanding that people are so much more than the skills and behaviours they demonstrate.
