Kaylene focuses on the programs and increasing teacher knowledge within the centres.  One of two Neuro-Development Consultants in NSW, this skill enables her to pinpoint neurological immaturities of children within the classes and advise parents on how to encourage appropriate development.  Kayene carries out full assessments and individualised programs for children aged 0-12 years who may have some developmental challenges.
