Our How and Why – The Reasons Behind an Online Library

Topic: The reasons behind an online library – Why Look Hear Australia? 

Why did you start LHA?

I want it to be a long term resource I can use for my therapy, so I don’t have to send stuff to families or create things for families all the time. I want to empower families to do that for themselves and I want these resources to be available for therapists who are time poor.

How did you decide on a blog/website?

I also want it to be online or cloud so I don’t have to have all these resources on my computer – I can have an I-pad or tablet for work, as then all the resources are available to me wherever I am.

Who are you writing a blog for?
