About Shine Early Intervention
Shine Early Intervention was the brain child of Lisa Fruhstuck (Certified Practising Speech Pathologist) and Christine Dredge (Registered Occupational Therapist). Having worked in early childhood intervention for a combined 40+ years, Lisa and Chris saw a need for a private early intervention team in the Macarthur region that could meet the unique needs of children with Developmental Delay, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome and other diagnosis. Starting out as a mobile service in 2011, our client base has grown and our staff has expanded as a result of meeting the needs of so many families in the area.
In January 2015, Shine has opened it's new premises in Campbelltown which features a unique sensory room. We still continue to offer our fantastic mobile services for those families requiring it.
Our in house and multi specialist approach is our greatest advantage as we bring together a multi facit approach to your childs care and needs.. This approach enables us to deliver the best possible care to your child and families. We believe every child should have the chance to SHINE!
