oyce-Lyn strives to recruit highly experienced professionals with the aim of providing high quality advice, supports and services. Joyce-Lyn provides mentoring and supervision to PoDDSS team to support her vision of THINK BIG, START SMALL, MOVE SLOWLY, GROW.
Joyce-Lyn prides herself on thinking outside the box and trialling various evidence-based techniques that might better support the person or families involved, as well as improving functional capacity, and their ability to interact with those around them.
Joyce-Lyn is very aware of the effect of sensory processing and the effect when behaviours of concern occur. She was lucky enough to be part of a mentor’s group with international experts Professor Anne Donnellan and Martha Leary (SLP) and as a result of that she designed a program with her good friend Mr Karl Jacks to assist those supporting people with sensory processing challenges & movement difference to understand what is happening for them.
Joyce-Lyn has a strong passion for visual supports and all her team members utilise this to prompt independence or as platform to communication new information.
Joyce-Lyn encourages ‘walk ins’ from informal supports, organisations and participants. Joyce-Lyn is always up for a chat and coffee if you can find her in the office!
