Name: Meg McDade
Three Things About Me:I love being outdoors, I’ve run two marathons, and I have a very cheeky cat.
Additional Training: In 2015 I attended a Interdisciplinary Feeding Workshop at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. In 2017 I completed training in The SOS Approach to Feeding which is a program for assessing and treating children with feeding difficulties. I have also completed Basic Auslan Training in 2015. I am currently completing the Greenspan DIR Floortime Online Training, which develops communication and early social skills in children with developmental delays. I am also a member of Speech Pathology Australia.
Why I love my job: I love working with children and families to improve their skills and help children to reach their full potential. Communication is such an important part of lives, and I love being able to support my clients to communicate to the best of their ability. There is no better feeling than watching a child’s confidence improve while they are working on their communication skills. Getting to know families as they are on their therapy journey is so rewarding and I really enjoy being a part of it.
Favourite toy to use in therapy:I love using farm animal toys and cars!
