Mabel has practiced in a variety of settings, ranging from Early Intervention Centres, mainstream preschools, paediatric intensive therapy centres, aged care facilities, mental health settings (acute hospital and community groups).
Mabel brings with her experience of being a Key Worker, which shaped her to be a strong advocate for inclusion.

Having briefly worked in a Paediatric Intensive Therapy Centre, Mabel is also an advocate for providing innovative and individualised intensive treatment to children with neurological/ physical impairments or learning difficulties, to maximise their potential in participating in everyday activities.
Mabel is experienced in providing individualised one-to-one treatment, group treatments, as well as centre-based and school-based intervention to children and adolescents.
