Justine Demaine, The Quirky Therapist, is a neurodiversity therapist based in South West Victoria, supporting and advocating for the autistic and neurodivergent community.

Justine is not afraid to challenge out-dated ideas and perspectives.  She advocates and educates families, schools, work places and the community to develop a better understanding of autism, encouraging non-autistic people to be more accommodating, compassionate and empathetic.
Justine is our voice when we don’t have one, and making it loud and clear – if you have met one autistic person, you have met one autistic person.  Autistic adults and children are individuals who have individual needs, dreams, and desires and have a right to be respected and supported to access opportunities like everyone else living in our community.
