Hi, I’m Kristi

I teach people with disabilities to skilfully use everyday mobile devices with purpose.

How we can help

Do you have an NDIS plan that includes building your capacity to improve daily living skills and increase independence?

Is it one, some or all of these skills:
communication, social, employment, daily living, recreational


Do you want to learn how to use your mobile device the best you can?

I work WITH you to:

  • Meet your individual needs and achieve your NDIS goals
  • Match the right technology solutions to your skills and abilities
  • Learn at your own PACE in a user-friendly environment
  • Educate your support networks so you have support outside of 1:1 sessions

Therapy Assistants work directly with NDIS participant under the supervision of an allied health professional, their role may involve:


  • Transferring skills to increase independence across all settings
  • Increasing community participation and social engagement
  • Practicing and developing communication skills including alternative communication
  • Establishing routines/strategies tailored to improve overall development

Appy Connections has a Developmental Educator as an Allied Health professional and a Therapy Assistant.

We provide 1:1 Support on Far South Coast NSW

and provide TeleTherapy services too.

What parents and carers have to say

Thank you Kristi for your professional and efficient approach in responding to the complex individual needs of my son, for thinking outside the square, helping him to achieve his goals, outcomes and choices. We look forward to many more happy therapy sessions with you.

What parents and carers have to say

We have used this service for about four years now. Why? Kristi knows her clients and is able to get them to learn in comfort and a fun environment and most importantly lets my son shine. Can and will highly recommend Appy Connections.

What parents and carers have to say

Kristi makes learning fun and has helped my daughter with using different types of apps and programs on her iPad for a few years now and we hope she will continue into the future. I also asked my daughter if she likes it when she has help from you and if she would like more help when the virus is over and again she smiled and said yes!
