Sarah has worked at PosAbility for four years as a Special Education Consultant, with a particular interest in assessing the educational needs and creating individualised programs for children with Specific Learning Disorders and Difficulties, including Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and ADHD.
Prior to joining PosAbility, Sarah spent 11 years as a physiotherapist working across multiple private practices and hospitals in Sydney and London.

This period included time spent outside clinical practice as a rehabilitation consultant, focused on workplace assessments and return to work programs for injured and disabled workers.
