Bimal has over 15 years of experience working with a wide range of children with special needs, including Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Developmental Delay.

Bimal is qualified to assess and diagnose children with autism and developmental disabilities. He is highly experienced in planning individualised programs for children with special needs.

After graduating from Monash University with an Honours Degree in Psychology, Bimal began his working career as a special education teacher with M.I.N.D.S.. This experience laid the foundation for him to learn about the many and diverse conditions special needs children have, and their developmental and learning difficulties.

He enjoyed teaching and helping special needs children and decided to further his education and training. With a Masters in hand he joined K.K. Women’s & Children’s Hospital (KKH), Child Development Unit, as an Educational Psychologist. At CDU he played a key role in program development and training. When Bimal left CDU it was to start a private practice.

Currently, the bulk of his work is geared towards the RDI® Program. In 2007 Bimal became one of the first RDI® Program Certified Consultants in this region. He began practicing RDI® in 2006 as a Consultant-in-Training. RDI® has allowed him to educate families about autism from a developmental approach. It has been meaningful for him to see the family and child develop a closer relationship while still remediating the core issues of autism.

Bimal welcomes the opportunity to speak at schools, to parents, and organisations on Autism and the RDI® program. He is a keen advocate for public education and has been a keynote speaker at regional conferences. At present he lectures for the School of Linguistics on Autism, ADHD, Child Psychology and the various intervention strategies available.
