Personal profile


Anoo Bhopti is a Senior Lecturer and Researcher in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University and an occupational therapy clinician in paediatrics. Anoo’s research is embedded within the early childhood intervention and childhood disability sector. Her research findings have been used to support the early childhood intervention sector in their written submissions to support the inclusion of parents as applicants for the National Disability Inclusion Scheme. She was a co-author on a report for the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and collaboratively published the National Guidelines for Best Practice in Early Childhood Intervention. Anoo is committed to working closely with families, to achieve inclusion and participation of children in their homes and communities and follows family-centred practice, strength-based and person-first approaches. Here research interests include childhood disability, family quality of life, parent occupations, paediatric occupational therapy interventions, evidence-based practice, translation research and inclusion and participation of children with disability. Current research projects include a pipeline of parent support programs called "We Care" and “Now and Next” with an aim to improve family quality of life of families living with a disability.
