ABOUT US

In 2019 Catherine Omni was enjoying a holiday with her young family when it occurred to her that many of the families she encounters through her clinic, Augmentia Health, on the Central Coast New South Wales, face great obstacles that make a holiday and other simple outings and tasks an extremely stressful and fraught experience.

Catherine then decided to embark on a journey of research and development to create a series of training workshops and courses and began sharing her knowledge and experience with businesses and service providers and Neurodiversity Centre Australia was born.

With a dedication to removing limitations and improving accessibility to services, education, healthcare and travel, tourism and hospitality for individuals living with neurodiverse conditions and their families, NDCAU aims to break down barriers in the workplace and business setting that prove overwhelming and complex for people with additional needs.

NDCA training includes evidence-based response practices, is based on current research and is designed by professionals in the field of autism and disability intervention. Our various training and consulting services are designed to be a collaborative experience and our trainers will work closely with your team, from top management to the valuable people on the front line, to tap into their wealth of knowledge of the industry and market to help you reach your goal of providing better service outcomes and experiences for this underserviced community and open a world without limits for individual regardless of their abilities or personal circumstances.
