Mrs Amanda Caffyn (Psychologist)

Jump to: navigation, search

I am an endorsed Educational and Developmental Psychologist working with children, adolescents and young adults affected by a range of issues. I provide counselling and conduct cognitive, educational, behavioural and autism assessments. I provide strategies for the classroom and home and support for parents and teachers.

I have worked as a school psychologist in primary and secondary schools since 2005 and in private practice since 2011. As a private practitioner, I work with schools to assist children and their families with learning strategies and outcomes. I have extensive experience writing funding applications and working with other health professionals to assist children and their families with supporting evidence and assessments for funding for programs for students with disabilities. I work with children aged 4 - 18 and young adults. I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents and assist young adults with developmental difficulties such as ADHD and Autism.

I am registered with Medicare and can provide sessions under the Medicare Better Access to Mental Health Initiative, the Helping Children with Autism Package and NDIS (plan-managed and self-managed).
