Leaps and Bounds – Tori’s story




At age two, Tori was non-verbal, and Cherrie noticed similar behaviour ­­with her eldest son who also has Autism, prompting a referral from her General Practitioner (GP) to healthAbility. “I phoned up and spoke to Dr Mandy, who said, ‘I think I can help you’”.

Soon Tori had a diagnosis and was connected to other health professionals such as a Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist and a Psychologist.

Tori is able to see Dr Mandy, thanks to a generous funding grant from Community Bank Blackburn South. They granted healthAbility additional funding over a three-year period (from 2021 to 2024) for eligible families to gain access to our Paediatric services.
