The Abrolhos Group is a not-for-profit organisation, based in Geraldton, which was incorporated in June 2014.
We achieved Public Benevolent Institution status 11/11/15. This means that all donations are tax deductible. The group was formed by Dr Kim Pedlow and his wife Annie, who recognised that there were a number of gaps in the services and support available for children with specific learning and behavioural difficulties.
Our aim is to provide assistance that would not otherwise be available in the areas where we have expertise.
We are pleased to report that we now have timely access to educational psychometric assessments. This is courtesy of our rekindled relationship with Professor Stephen Houghton’s Department of Educational Psychology at UWA.
Dr Anne Angelkovska and her team are regularly visiting Geraldton. This is achieving timely and valuable diagnosis of various learning difficulties.
We are now in urgent need of downstream assistance to help mentor these kids through the education system. Anyone with an interest in this area or just wants to come and talk to us please contact as above.
We are having an open day at Victoria District Medical Centre commencing 2 PM Tuesday 26th of March 2019. Our educational psychology team will be available for questions
- Assisting identification and management of specific learning and behavioural difficulties in children.
- We run fundraising events. These include point of care U/S workshops for health professionals.
