Barbie Bates                                                                                    

Barbie is the Executive Director of the national charity Paint the Town REaD Ltd, which aims to encourage everyone in community to support the development of children’s early literacy skills from birth, so that they will be ready for reading and writing at school.

She came to this position through the power of read, talk, sing and draw as a way to help parents form and strengthen secure attachments with their babies. This knowledge grew out of her clinical work as a paediatric occupational therapist, over many years partnering with families suffering from trauma and dislocation. The intricacies and miracles of early brain development have been an inspirational and sobering foundation for this work.
