Parent Represenatives

Please download an SSPA brochure for the parents of children with short stature here:

The following list of SSPA Parent Representatives acts as a contact for parents of short-statured children, including those children who may be newly-diagnosed. Parents are referred to the SSPA by the Genetics Clinics attached to Children’s Hospitals in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Hobart.

Between them, our parent reps around the country have a wealth of experience, practical knowledge and good humour. They have much to offer parents on the practicalities of rearing a child with a condition of short stature. Some of our parent reps are short-statured themselves and have raised at least one child with short stature.
All of our parent reps are happy to talk to parents on the general subject of short stature, but please note that our parent reps are not equipped with medical knowledge or expertise; the members of our Professional Advisory Board may issue advice of that nature.

The current SSPA Parent Representatives are:
