Meet Our Principal
Bronwyn graduated as a speech pathologist in 1984 and has worked as a speech pathologist for over 32 years. Over the years, Bronwyn’s extensive experience involved working with children with different abilities (or disabilities) in both government and non-government services. A passion for supporting the development of children on the Autism Spectrum was ignited in 2008 when Bronwyn attended her first DIR Floortime workshop, Introductory Training on the Greenspan/ Wieder DIR/ Floortime Approach. A learning journey unfolded, leading Bronwyn into a year of study to complete the Basic Certificate in DIR Floortime through Profectum Academy. Bronwyn is also trained to present the Hanen programs: It Takes Two To Talk and More Than Words.
