  • A variety of standardised assessments

She has loved developing her skills in the paediatric space and implementing a strong client and family-centred approach to therapy. She is passionate about building therapeutic rapport with children and their families in a fun and safe environment.

Sarah is always excited to meet her clients with their families/carers and build a strong therapeutic rapport. She believes a great part of her job is explaining the different activities of daily living we can support and creating goals specific to the clients and their environments.

She is excited to be working with the team at Ability Action Australia and working with clients in the Hunter New England region of NSW.
