Kate has worked with a range of families and is passionate about empowering parents and carers to be able to support their childs communication skills at home, through everyday interactions, play and - where necessary - individualised therapy activities. Kate's aim is that every parent/carer feels a part of the therapy process and an equal partner in finding the best fit for your family, guided by her expertise when required.
