About Lydia Meem

Lydia is a Fellow of the APS College of Clinical Psychologists, is a Board-approved supervisor, and a Registrar program principal supervisor in the Clinical psychology area of practice. Lydia is also an author and popular speaker, presenting at autism conferences around the world, and she often provides training on neurodiversity affirming approaches for teachers of Autistic students. 

For many years Lydia has conducted training and clinical supervision for psychologists around autism, cognitive and developmental assessments, and how to empower clients and their families through the assessment and consultation process. 

She encourages psychologists to pay attention to the qualitative aspects of psychometric assessment, not just the test scores. The way a child or adolescent approaches the assessment and interacts with the assessor can provide clues for further assessment and effective strategies.

Through one-on-one clinical supervision Lydia will show you how to confidently recognise these important clues in your own clients, how to clearly describe your observations in your reports.

Private clinical supervision gives you an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of what we are really looking for in autism assessments, to have more confidence around detecting the signs of autism, considering dual/differential diagnosis, and describing what you've observed in your reports.

We will also discuss how to empower families through the diagnostic process, report and feedback session so they can recognise strengths and advocate for accommodations and supports.

Private Supervision Sessions can be held online via Zoom, in clinic in Newcastle NSW, or via phone.
