Tayce is one of our fabulous OT’s working fulltime across the Riverland and Mallee regions. Tayce completed a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) at Monash University Melbourne graduating in 2020, and also spent time in the PCP Honours project in Compensatory Technology to support middle school adolescents who experience reduced literacy skills. Tayce has experience working for a non-for-profit organisation within regional NSW, within the paediatric sector, having had the opportunity to work closely with other allied health providers in a holistic and inclusive practice.
Tayce’s desire to become an OT was sparked when she had the opportunity to work within a primary school as a teachers aid on her gap year, which increased her passion for working with children, and led to opportunities to shadow an OT. Tayce fell in love with the increased opportunity to provide equity for children who do not experience inclusion due to disability, and particularly loves providing opportunities for others to reach their independence goals.
Tayce has a particular in interest in in sensory processing within a functional setting, assistive technology to support children with significant cognitive and physical disabilities and believes in a multidisciplinary approach to reach a common goal.
Tayce likes to keep fit with running and loves to travel and learn new things, and her favourite food is unusual… Sour Worms!
