Over 20 years experience
Tammy Reid has over 20 years experience working with children, teens and adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Secondly, invited by Education Queensland, Tammy accepted the role of an Advisory Visiting Teacher in ASD and provided consultation for teachers in ASD across five (5) primary schools. Then worked as a Special Education Teacher teaching students with Autism in both Primary and Secondary Schools.
From 2013 – 2015 Tammy was Head of Secondary Learning Support at Coomera Anglican College on the Gold Coast.
Passionate about supporting families by the end of 2015, Tammy established ASD Approaches and moved into Private Practice as part of the Autism Gold Coast Consortium.
Currently, Tammy is an Early Intervention Service Provider as part of the Helping Children With Autism (HCWA) Package, an Initiative from the Australian Government, Department of Social Services.
Tammy is not an NDIS Provider, however can be sub-contracted to work with your family.
Personal Experience with Autism
Tammy’s compassion and understanding when working with families comes from her personal experience with Autism. Her nephew, Jack was diagnosed with Autism at age 2 and is now 22.
New Approach to Autism – Doing What Works
Tammy discovered that giving you her wisdom was interesting, yet not empowering and sometimes did not work when applied to your situation. Tammy founded Doing What Works, in 2016, to share a method, which she has been using, with success, since 2004. Now, instead of giving you strategies for you to use with your child, her consultancy service integrates the facilitation of The Work of Byron Katie to listen and lead you to find your own answers to life situations that create stress, so that inner peace can return.
With extensive experience, Tammy is also available to speak and offer training in Autism, sharing her specific way of working.
