Speech Pathologist and Director
Caitlin Breheny studied Speech Pathology and Audiology at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. Caitlin moved to Australia after graduating and began her career working in early intervention with the Autism Association of WA. This ignited a passion for empowering families faced with disabilities and supporting each child holistically through family centred practice.
Caitlin has 15 years experience working in a variety of different paediatric clinical settings in Australia, Singapore, Indonesia and South Africa. Having lived and worked in rural remote Western Australia for 8 years, Caitlin is familiar with the difficulties and challenges faced by families needing to access health services in these regions. Her determination to provide more options for families in Karratha and surrounds drove her to open up Connect Paediatric Therapy services in 2016 with the aim of bringing evidence based, multidisciplinary services to the Pilbara.
Caitlin has a special interest in developmental difficulties and has done extensive training in Greenspan’s Developmental Individual Difference Relationship Based therapeutic framework. She is a Hanen trained therapist in both It Takes Two To Talk and More than Words as well as a certified Circle of Security Parenting Facilitator.
Caitlin and her husband have 3 boys aged between 3 and 8 years old. When she is not at work she enjoys adventuring with her family on a boat or in a caravan, exploring the beautiful Pilbara.
