Provisional Psychologist, Sophia Littler.
Sophia is a registered Provisional Psychologist. Following her completion of a Bachelor of Psychology, where she received first class honours, she commenced her Masters degree in Clinical Neuropsychology, a discipline that focuses on assessment, diagnosis, and intervention of brain-based disorders, a degree she is in the final stages of completing.
Sophia has held positions as an NDIS Home and Community Support Worker and completed an internship at the Centre for Brain and Mental Health Research, contributing to an international research study of multi sensory integration of sound and touch in Autism Spectrum Disorders.
During Sophia’s Master’s placements, she has had experience working in a multidisciplinary team with children and their families in the assessment and diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and specific learning disorders within a community health setting. She has also worked with parents and schools to develop evidence-based recommendations and interventions that support children’s learning and behaviour at home and in the classroom.Sophia has a strong understanding of the cognitive processes that underpin a child’s behaviour, including their attention and learning skills. She strongly believes that helping families to understand their child’s unique strengths and weaknesses empowers them with the understanding required to make informed choices.
Sophia will be offering assessments at The Young Mind Clinic at a reduced cost.
