Stepping Stones - Broome
Supporting Children from birth to 18 year olds to develop to their full potential
Opening in May 2022, Stepping Stones is excited to begin offering Allied Health Services to the Broome community. Stepping Stones looks forward to supporting children from birth-18 years, to develop to their full potential.
Ashlee Ritchie, Senior Occupational Therapist now lives in the beautiful Broome region, and looks forward to providing regular, face to face supports.
She remains in (online) close contact with the Southwest team to ensure that all Broome clients are well supported. This means that Broome clients will have access to remote Psychology and Speech Pathology supports which Ashlee will continue with in person, and the team will very much enjoy occasional trips to Broome to also see clients face to face!
Ashlee looks forward to growing the Stepping Stones’ Broome team as she settles in.

Functional skill development such as cooking, dressing, and cleaning
Behavioural supports through a combination of face to face supports with Ashlee, and remote psychology consultative supports where required
