Based in County Cork and working nationwide, Sarah Murray is a paediatric behaviour analyst specialising and consulting in child behaviour, infant development and early intervention, helping to support and assist families across Ireland using practical, effective and evidence-based intervention strategies.
"My passion resides in empowering parents and supporting them using a holistic, team-based approach, for the learning, development and progression of their children"
Sarah specialises specifically in early intervention. When young infants, toddlers and pre-school aged children are not meeting their typical early childhood developmental milestones, Sarah designs and develops tailor made and evidence-based early intervention programmes and curricula to assist very young children to achieve their full potential and reach their developmental targets. Sarah has worked with children with developmental delays, speech and language delays, developmental disabilities, autism, premature infants, and children with various medical needs and other learning needs.
Sarah is an accredited behaviour specialist - a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) - who offers specialised child behaviour support programmes to parents of children who may require guidance and assistance on how to proceed with addressing their child's behavioural concerns.
Sarah provides parent support, parental training, and ongoing review consultations directly with parents on their therapeutic goals and progress with their children.
In addition, applied behaviour analysis supervision and support to students and therapists on their behaviour analytical work with their own clients and to those in pursuit of BCBA accreditation is available.
In addition, Sarah teaches a carefully structured and empirically supported social skills curriculum which focuses heavily on theory of mind, play and peer socialisation.
