Dimitra Baveas - Creator or My Burrow; B.SpEd (Griffith University)

Dimitra Baveas was teaching in Queensland schools when her own daughter began to struggle in the classroom. Observing the immediate positive impact on her daughter’s focus and learning skills at the conclusion of each Occupational therapy session; she recognized the need to link the immediacy of these gains into the classroom learning process.

By including therapy into the learning processes, Dimi’s aim was to foster greater generalization of positive therapy outcomes and the subsequent improvement in academic, social and emotional development. Dimi’s recognition of the need to build a bridge between therapy outcomes and in-class learning processes provided the inspiration for the creation of not a “bridge” but a burrow, ‘MyBurrow®’.

Since the launch of MyBurrow® physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinicians, teachers and parents in schools, clinics and hospitals around Australia have attested to the positive impact of MyBurrow®.  Teaming up with Helena Smith {retired G.O.D – Guidance Officer (Developmental)} MyBurrow® now produces lesson plans and other supplementary resources available upon signing up to our newsletter at
