Our next Zoom webinar will be with Devon Barnes on
11 November 2021.

This is the first time Devon Barnes will present to the Macquarie ADHD Parent Support Group.

This information session will outline a variety of learning and language disorders including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, auditory processing disorder and other learning comorbidities with ADHD. Devon will help explain what they are, and what they aren’t. These conditions are complex and may involve concerns on language, writing, fine motor skills, executive function, cognitive processing and working memory. These conditions can be very common in kids with ADHD.

Devon Barnes is the Clinical Director of Lindfield Speech Pathology & Learning Centre which she established in 1990. She has over 50 years experience working with children and adults with speech, language, literacy and learning problems including dyslexia, auditory processing disorder and autism spectrum disorders. She has spoken at conferences in Australia, in New Zealand, USA and Malaysia on learning and reading difficulties. Devon has worked in both the public and private sectors with adults and children as both a speech pathologist and an audiologist.
