About Wendy Clifton, Founder
Wendy was an occupational therapist for almost 40 years and has worked with both children and adults throughout her career.  She has a special interest in paediatrics and greatly enjoys working with children. Her primary areas of focus have included: sensory processing, problems with self-regulation and modulation, printing/writing skills, co-ordination problems, non-verbal learning disabilities, autism and PDD, and attention deficit disorders. 

Wendy is the mother of two children, both of whom have had learning and co-ordination issues. Experiencing family life first hand from this perspective has greatly increased her understanding and awareness of the challenges faced by families of children with learning and/or developmental differences.
