Kate has been working in the field of ABA since 2013, beginning as a behaviour therapist while completing her undergraduate studies in psychology. As a behaviour therapist Kate worked with children diagnosed with ASD and other developmental delays in their homes, childcares, kindergartens and schools. In 2017 Kate completed her Masters in Applied Behaviour Analysis through Arizona State University, became a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA), and stepped into a Program Supervisor role (it was a big year!). As a Program Supervisor Kate predominantly works with children aged up to 12 years, with some experience working with young adults. She frequently collaborates with educators at her kids’ childcares, kindergartens, and schools to find ways to maximise learning and inclusion in their education settings.
Kate has also been involved in presenting training workshops for educators and allied health professionals, and in developing content for Monash University’s ABA Masters course. Kate has extensive experience teaching functional communication, language skills, and coping skills to reduce behaviours of concern and help kids learn to communicate what they need and want calmly and safely, even in tricky situations. She is passionate about working closely with her kids, their families, and their educators to problem solve and find ways that everyone can work together to best support that child’s learning and participation in all areas of their life.
