In Episode 24 of Build ‘Em Up, we chat to Caitlin Breheny, Founder and Director of Connect Paediatric Therapy Services, an inter-, multi- and transdisciplinary allied health service that has seen a major increase in demand in the remote Pilbara and Kimberley regions of Western Australia.
With a background in early intervention and disability as a speech pathologist, Caitlin identified a disturbing gap in allied health services for families in the most isolated regions of Australia. Being exposed to the inequality families have endured and the impact poor service delivery has had on families and children’s quality of life, Caitlin became determined to build an innovative service model for our most vulnerable and geographically isolated communities.
Connect Paediatric Therapy Services was recently awarded the health category of the Innovate with nbn grants program, in recognition of its innovative service delivery in rural and remote regions.
