Fiona Allanson is the inaugural recipient of the Brightwater Lyn Beazley Scholarship
The University of WA Psychology and PhD candidate is researching the neuropsychological predictors of outcomes following acquired brain injury in adults.
At Oats Street, the focus is on a person's abilities rather than their disability, and supporting them to maintain current skills, regain lost skills and learn new skills. The approach encourages and supports clients to stay connected with people, places and pursuits important to them. By doing this, their quality of life is enhanced and their independence and personal autonomy maintained and strengthened.
