Deputy Director, Neuro-development and Disability, Stream Leader- Intellectual Disability and Autism, Honorary Fellow Murdoch Children's Research Institute, The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne

My current role is as a general paediatrician caring for children with a range of physical and intellectual disabilities from birth to 18 years of age.

I trained in Melbourne in the early 1980's, worked in London for 6 years and returned to Melbourne in 1994. I work predominantly in the department of neuro-development and disability, but have also worked in mental health and child protection services at the Royal Children's Hospital since then.

Catherine will present at the Special Needs Symposium.
