Katrina North

Therapy Assistant

Trina is our warm and attentive Therapy Assistant, who brings with her a Certificate III in Disability Support, Certificate III in Education Support and Certificate III in Early Childhood. Prior to joining the Stepping Stones team, she has worked as both a mainstream and Special Needs Education Assistant at various private and public primary schools. During these roles she was required to support a range of children, and implement Speech and Occupational Therapy goals into their classwork with limited assistance or support (due to living in a remote town). Trina has a strong interest in Psychology, and hopes to study more in this area in the future. Here at Stepping Stones, Trina runs individualised therapy programs for our clients, at a reduced rate of what is typically charged sessions provided by a Speech or Occupational Therapist. These therapy programs are written and monitored by our Speech and OT team, to ensure that they include best practice principles to meet your goals in the most efficient way possible. Trina works with children of all skill levels targeting articulation, literacy, language, social skills, fine and gross motor development, sensory regulation and visual integration. Outside of the Stepping Stones clinic, you may see Trina running around after her own three children, or joining in local activities around Burekup!
