Bonnie has over thirty years of experience working with children in diverse settings. Work settings have included the Williams Lake Child Development Centre, Queen Alexandra Hospital's feeding team and early intervention team and BC Centre for Ability's early intervention team, hearing impairment team in addition to her role of clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia's faculty of Medicine, School of Audiology and Speech Sciences.
Her focus and experience with the paediatric population diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), significant communication disorders and eating difficulties, supported Bonnie's passion in the field to grow. She became eager to understand how young children with developmental difficulties communicate and build relationships within their families and in community settings. This led Bonnie to begin studies through The Neufeld Institute in the spring of 2015. She plans to study further in order to understand attachment theory and how it relates to her work.
Bonnie has continued to develop her passion and has learned so much from having the opportunity to work as a Behavioural consultant for the last four years. She is thankful to each family who welcomes her into their home and is humbled by each experience. Bonnie completed the Early Start Denver Model introduction course in the spring of 2016 then completed the Advanced Training Workshop November 23-26 2016.
