In 2016 Allison created a music therapy program focused on a palliative approach to dementia care and presented her findings at the International Dementia Conference and the World Congress of Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies.
She was named a 2016 National AMP Tomorrow Maker for her contribution to creating a better tomorrow for Australian families through her 2 day workshop, Brains = Behaviours, which was first offered as an eCourse in 2018.
Allison lives in regional Tasmania, with her husband and 2 children, where she enjoys the beach, the bush and baths.
“I am always on the lookout for wise people who can connect and communicate in common sense ways with today’s parents and those who work with children. These experts need to be able to make sense of many of the challenges that can happen in homes and in centres, and to then offer practical solutions that work.
Allison is one of my favourites who does this. She helps us all to make better choices and take better care of our precious brains in her unique, entertaining way.”
