About Kathleen I am an RDI Program Certified Consultant in Brisbane Queensland, serving families in the Brisbane, Ipswich, Sunshine Coast & Gold Coast areas. I help parents learn to guide their neurologically vulnerable children using the RDI Family Consultation Program, which is a unique, evidence-based training and supervision program. I work one-on-one with parents using the RDI curriculum, meeting regularly in person and I also review the detailed video parents provide, which document the progress in goals for themselves and their child.

After years of experience as an ABA Consultant with families and special education departments, Kathleen has now chosen to devote herself to the developmental side of working with children and families with Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Having my own child diagnosed with Autism I decided to embark on an intensive ABA home-based intervention programme. It was during this period I realised there was something missing, something not quite right. My son was used to structure and routine, he knew the answers to a lot of rehearsed questions yet if there were any small changes to this structure or routine, he would have a Meltdown. It was at that moment I knew there was a critical piece of the puzzle missing.

RDI is often described as "the missing piece of the puzzle" in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

My warmth, passion and confidence shine through as I have worked alongside some of Queensland’s leading Autism agencies, schools, and kindergartens. I have been and continue to board member and Director for numerous companies and heads Blue Sky Foundation, a Foundation she founded to help families and individuals with a neurogicial disorder
