Social Work

Main Content

Kites social workers provide counselling and support for your family. They can provide you, as parents, with information and assistance surrounding key decisions about care, education, and respite choices for your child.

Social workers can maintain and build your capacity in your caring roles for your child, acknowledging their additional needs. They also provide information for parents who wish to meet others with similar experiences.

Kites social workers are accredited members of the Australian Association of Social Workers (link opens in new tab).

Along with her extensive education, she has 10 years of working in Early Childhood Education where she developed an interest in working with children who have additional needs.

"My favourite thing about working in early childhood therapy is working with parents to get extra support and coming up with unique ways of helping the families and children. It's very rewarding."
