Joanne McIntyre, OTR, MS (Psych), BCN, PhD Candidate
Joanne moved to the United States after graduating from LaTrobe University in 1991 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Occupational Therapy. She later completed a Master’s of Science majoring in Psychology at California Southern University.
While residing in the U.S.A for 23 years, Joanne founded a therapy practice including Speech Language pathologists, Physiotherapists and Psychologists.
Joanne pursued specialty training in various clinical interventions and treatment programs that identify and address the underlying neurological causes of state regulation, learning and behavior issues versus symptomology.
