Why work with me?

Capable Spaces was founded by Karen Maurer in 2018, who has been an OT working for over 23 years, with most of her career time working as a community OT. She is building a team of experienced clinicians who are also keen to help share their skills and experience with the AT community.

We are passionate about training up the OTs of the future, and want to cheer on anyone who wants to do their best job to help people to live in their homes despite disabilities or health conditions.

To Live Well, with purpose and meaning.

Karen has been running practical training courses over the last decade since when working in many roles at Hunter New England Health, and then transitioning into the private sector. She loves finding resources and collating these to help other clinicians and students so that they can grow their skills, and work more effectively and efficiently.

Work smarter, not harder.

This training aims to save you time as you learn from the mistakes we’ve made along the way, so you can hit the ground running and get better AT outcomes for your clients.

After working at an equipment pool for over a decade in the Hunter, Karen has an appreciation of maximising the power of AT, working collaboratively with the AT team, and making creative solutions from resources that are available. She loves developing her skill in matching the AT to the person, their environment and their functional needs.

So I created the AT Framework

Since starting private practice, Karen has been building networks with many other experienced clinicians, drawing on the skills of others who she can ask for support when she needs it. Her goal is to share this model of networking across Australia, creating an AT Community to give this same opportunity to others who have so far been doing this journey without support.
