Supporting Students with Disability and Complex Medical Needs

Kathryn has worked within all education sectors including NSW Department of Education, Catholic Schools and Independent Schools, as well as roles within NSW Health across the past 25 years. She has worked with students engaged in mainstream education, schools for specific purposes, support units and students enrolled in distance education or home school.

As a result of working within the Paediatric Rehabilitation Team and Paediatric Brain Injury Team within HNE Kids Health, Kathryn has developed particular expertise in the support of students with disability and complex medical needs within the education setting.

She embraces collaborative partnerships between families, education and health to achieve optimal outcomes for students with rare disease, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, hearing impairment, Autism Spectrum Disorders or complex medical conditions requiring a high level of student absence from school. For example, students who have undergone treatment for childhood cancers.

Kathryn has experience working with the Ronald McDonald Learning Program as well as the NDIS and other funding organisations such as The Steve Waugh foundation, The Starlight Foundation and the Childhood Cancer Foundation.

In 2021, Kathryn was employed as a member of the Teacher Writing Team for the curriculum reform process and re-write of both the K-2 and 3-6 NSW English Syllabus. She has presented at conferences for Learning Difficulties Australia, The Children’s Book Council of Australia (on behalf of Speech Pathology Australia), Think Forward Educators and Sharing Best Practice.
