Renee Townson and Tarryn Dee Interview – Serving Kids With ‘Diffabilities’

In this episode, we talk with Cathy Love about all things from NDIS, to why this business was started almost 10 years ago to serve families and careers. 

Renee Townson and Tarryn Dee, co-founders of My Diffability discuss the challenges as an online supplier, hearsay in the allied health sector, and, perhaps most importantly, remembering the bigger picture: it’s about helping people.

The Victoria-based company is an online store that provides therapy resources, equipment, toys and gifts for people with different abilities, special needs, sensory processing disorder, autism ASD and learning difficulties.

Both owners are successful in their respective fields of Paediatric Speech Pathology and Occupational Therapy and after seeing a gap in the sector, made the leap to become business owners in 2011.

While they’d put their success down to “good fortune”, they’ve worked hard to upskill in order to set up the business and continue to grow, even through the challenging channels of the NDIS.
