CONTRIBUTORS

We have a wonderful team of Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists, Play Therapists, Social Workers, Teachers, Web Designers, Illustrators, and Mums and Dads behind the scenes at Look Hear Australia, constantly updating and improving our site.

"We are a group that are passionate about making things easy for each other as professionals, as well as the families we treat."

We are also want to demonstrate that (most of the time) it is "not hard to make it easy", meaning that it is not difficult making language simple, information accessible and adding visuals to services and therapy to make life easier for everyone.

We started in our back yard, rural and remote Australia, have had stints in Asia, the US and most recently 6 years in the UK. We have been fortunate to travel the world and learn loads along the way!

As of early 2024, we are back in regional Australia and are ready to share our knowledge both locally and world wide!
