About Us
Ladybug House is run by a family. Maria is a senior speech pathologist and has over 20 years experience, working at Autism Spectrum Australia in NSW, as a clinical educator at Latrobe University and has lectured in Singapore on ASD. She is responsible for all things clinical. Renato has over 20 years experience working in large and small businesses. He is currently working on his Doctorate which is related to patient feedback on health care services. He does everything else! Their children provide support by volunteering in the office and reception and you will often see them in and about Ladybug  House. We want you to be part of the Ladybug House family. In doing so, your work will be more meaningfully connected with the families that come through the house.

Our management philosophy is family orientated. You are part of a family not a team, you are not treated as a cog in an organisational wheel. We actively support you and have your back when you need us the most. We are a humble organisation that punches above its weight. If you want a prestigious organisation with a title to match this not the job for you. We deliver services that make a real difference to family's everyday lives, we know because families tell us. Each family's stories of progress that we are told (in which we played a part), has sent shivers of joy down our spines and made our eyes water. That's why we exist. The meaning in our work relates directly to those feelings. Consequently, our business has been built on word of mouth and we have worked hard for every family.
