Having grown up in South Africa, Melanie began her career managing her own paediatric private practice in White River where she worked with children with learning disabilities and development delays. Her practice formed the base for a large geographical area with a limited therapy infrastructure. Children had to travel from far and wide and were unable to attend regular sessions to address their particular learning needs. Melanie saw an opportunity to address this growing need and solve this problem by developing a Visual Skills Builder CD consisting of 500 worksheets in January 2005. The idea was marketed to colleagues and professionals and received an overwhelming positive response. Melanie moved to the London, UK to continue working in a paediatric private practice in April 2005 and began test marketing the product in the UK. Due to positive feedback and helpful results, a second Visual Skills Builder CD was released in October 2007 and the Visual Learning for Life website was launched in December 2007. Melanie has successfully developed and maximised the contents of the Visual Learning for Life resources to give users a complete toolkit in the pursuit of improving and enhancing children's visual processing skills.
