About Adina Levy

Speech Therapist & Director of Play. Learn. Chat.

I’m a speech therapist based in Sydney, working mainly with autistic children and kids with disabilities since 2012. I’ve worked in a range of settings, from community and disability organisations, running my bricks-and-mortar group private practice, and now as a sole practitoner running an online-only private practice.

I am somewhat obsessed with finding the balance between helpful, ethical practice, clinical relevance, sustainable, profitable services, happy therapists and smooth systems.

I have a neurodiversity-affirming approach to my work with children and families. I believe that all brains are wonderful, different and needed. All children’s and adults’ individual strengths and passions should be celebrated and honoured. I keep this at the front of my mind when designing, setting up and running groups. I’m exploring my own ND qualities, and have a strong sense of designing a work-life around your own individual (and your team’s) sensory, social and interest preferences!

I love making information clear and helpful for busy families, and now I’m so excited to be bringing this approach to other therapists and allied health private practice owners!

For many years I’ve been fielding emails and online group messages asking about how I get groups happening, and I decided that it’s time to pull all of my ideas, experience and perspecive together into one spot to support other private practices to run groups of your own!

You get the benefit of my 7+ years of running groups, learning, analysing & adapting! Our industry needs innovative approaches and I’m here to support you and your team to think creatively and adaptively about how groups can serve your clients, families and team!

Frequently Asked Questions


Anytime! It’s recorded so you can watch when it suits you, within 30 days.

I'm an OT - will this webinar apply to me?

Yep! I’ve designed it to be relevant to all allied health practices. I’m not sharing how to run specific groups, that part is up to you! I share info and considerations when running any kind of group in our various allied health private practice settings.

I'm not sure that I want to run groups. Should I join this webinar?

I reckon YES! I share a lot of ideas to get your brain-cogs turning about more innovative ways of delivering support to families and your community. You’ll be left with loads of new ideas that you can put into place over the next long-while, even if they’re not specifically for creating and running groups!

Can I attend if I'm not from Australia?

You’re welcome to! I reference our NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) and other issues local to Australian business owners, but there’s still a lot in there that is relevant for allied health businesses anywhere!
