Developmental Education

A Development Educator is an allied health professional who specialises in providing practical support to assist children and adults living with a disability to achieve independence.

Developmental Educators often work with people who have neurological conditions, disabilities, or disorders, including acquired brain injury, physical and neurological disabilities, intellectual disability, and people on the autism spectrum.
