Hello and welcome to My Diffability Australia, a place where different abilities are celebrated. My Diffability Australia is an online supplier of toys and resources for people with different abilities.
In 2011 we (Renee - speech pathologist and Tarryn - occupational therapist), joined forces to found My Diffability. We wanted to create a more supportive and helpful online service for the kids and families that we were working with.
Today we are still extremely passionate about what we do. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know and support so many families over the years with our resources and advice.
Our continued aim is to provide affordable and beneficial resources, as well as sharing free advice about our resources and how to use them effectively from qualified and experienced therapists.
Tarryn is a fun, knowledgeable and highly motivated Occupational Therapist with experience in providing therapy for children with sensory processing difficulties, fine and gross motor difficulties, attention and concentration difficulties, self-care skills including toilet training and fussy eating, as well as supporting families with positive behaviour management strategies.
Tarryn has worked extensively in paediatrics, including mainstream schools, special developmental schools and in private practice. She enjoys using a variety of specialised therapy models and programs to compliment her traditional therapy approaches with families, and it is through the combined use of these approaches that Tarryn achieves great outcomes for the children and families she works with. Tarryn enjoys witnessing the changes in children’s self-confidence, self-esteem and quality of life when they achieve their goals.
Renee, Speech Pathologist
Renee graduated as a Speech Pathologist in 2004. Throughout her career she has worked almost exclusively with children with additional needs and their families, including in large part, children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). She has provided both therapy and diagnostic services across a range of settings.
These days Renee dedicates her time to working at My Diffability Australia. She has a passion for writing articles to provide information to families and enjoys recording videos to show how resources can be used to support those with DIFFabilities.
We are very passionate about what we do and hope that you find our site useful.
Thanks for visiting,
My Diffability Australia.
