Meet Judy

Judy Drechsler - Disability Developmental EducatorI am a Developmental Educator who is a disability specialist offering therapy and assessments face to face across rural/regional areas and via video conferencing teletherapy sessions.

Developmental Educators are multi-disciplinary disability specialists with expertise in fostering the skills, independence and quality of life of individuals with developmental and/or acquired disabilities. 

I am highly skilled in assisting people with intellectual disabilities and high and complex needs to develop social and emotional self-regulatory skills.

I can support families and team members to develop skills that read and reduce negative behaviours. This includes teaching how to identify environmental stressors that may be contributing to these behaviours.

I provide effective strategies that can be used on a daily basis. Families and staff often comment on my ability to intuitively establish a rapport, especially with participants with high and complex needs. My ability to ‘read’ and make sense of their behaviours, whilst simultaneously teaching new skills and alternative behaviours, allows me to ensure the participants needs are met.

I also assist individuals to develop a range of skills including independent living skills, self help and money management skills.

I have 30 years experience working in a range of human service sectors including 20 years in senior operations and project management positions.

Examples of Services Provided Recently:

  • Support an individual to apply for tenancy to live alone, and source the appropriate in-home supports to develop independent living skills, liaising with medical staff, and other support services.
  • Assisted an individual to study over a number of weeks for her First Aid Certificate and Learners Permit and successfully gain both.
  • Organised a shopping trip to purchase healthy foods, so a lady could independently prepare them, cook and then share a meal with others.
  • Assisted several individuals to use technologies, such as programs that read for them and how to use an ATM and Pay Wave.

“If you’ve got a problem, it’s great that you’ve got someone to help because most people give up because they find it too hard and say ‘I don’t understand what you’re talking about.’ With Judy, I discuss something with her and say ‘well, I want to say this’ and then she says ‘is this what you’re trying to say?’ and I say ‘yes’. Mum and dad agree, mum and dad like her, not a problem.”

“Judy helps my/our daughter with behavioural support and management, in particular, self calming and school issues. She came to our home to assess her, and has gone into her school to help, and to give the teachers guidance. My daughter can’t read so Judy found a visual cookbook for her — they’ve been cooking together and it’s helping her gain independence. It’s been fantastic. My/our daughter gets along with her very well, she calls her ‘Nana Boo’. Judy is wonderful and I highly recommend her.”

“We’d tried about six different therapists before we found Judy — she’s the only one who could get through. Judy is easy going and extremely easy to talk to and my  daughter gets along with her very well. I think it’s because of the way she talks to her and treats her — Judy has a calm relaxed attitude and never talks down to her. Judy is also the only one who would go and talk to the teachers. She didn’t take no for an answer — she made things happen. She’s helped my daughter with her behaviour, with relaxation exercises and by giving her strategies to help her cope.”
