The team behind the Early Intervention Indigenous Liaison Officer Program:

Teresa Pilbeam

Team Leader

Teresa's professional background includes 25 years in the education sector and her studies highlight her interest in the education of children with disabilities. Teresa's current role as the National Coordinator Early Days and Indigenous Liaison Programs is complemented by her social sector participation as a board director of a disability and therapy service provider, consumer consultant for Queensland Health, and a carer representative member of the Queensland Carer Advisory Council, and the National Disability and Carer Advisory Council.


Teresa's skill set includes extensive board experience and a knowledge of current state, national and global trends relevant to sustaining and growing organisations within the disability sector to be responsive to the needs of persons with disability and their carers. 

Florence Williams

Liaison Officer

Flo is a Gunggari, Kamilaroi descendant. She has been involved In Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health since the early 1970s. After spending some time living in New Zealand and working in the Department of Housing and Education, she returned home to take up the position as CEO of Kambu Medical Centre in Ipswich QLD for 10 years. While in that role she held numerous positions on state and national Boards.


In the past 10 years Flo has worked on workforce development with Queensland Health and the Health and Community Services Workforce Council, and the Closing the Gap program with the Greater Metro South Brisbane Medicare Local. She recognised that in all her previous roles, ASD was never on the agenda in Aboriginal health and is therefore passionate about educating families about ASD diagnosis and supports.

Teresa Irvine

Administration Officer


Teresa is the support behind the team. She is the one who gets everyone where they need to be and when they need to be there. Teresa is responsible for supplying team members with relevant information and promotional materials and is also the main point of contact for incoming emails and telephone calls. As the mother of an autistic child, she understands the importance of relevant information and support.
