Anoo Bhopti is a Lecturer and Researcher at Latrobe University, Melbourne, and works as an occupational therapy clinician in paediatrics.
Anoo’s research is embedded within the early childhood intervention and childhood disability sector.

She was a co-author on a report for the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and collaboratively published the National Guidelines for Best Practice in Early Childhood Intervention.
Anoo is committed to working closely with families, to achieve inclusion and participation of children in their homes and communities and follows family-centred practice, strength-based and person-first approaches. Here research interests include childhood disability, family quality of life, parent occupations, paediatric occupational therapy interventions, evidence-based practice, translation research and inclusion and participation of children with disability.
Current research projects include a pipeline of parent support programs called "We Care" and “Now and Next” with an aim to improve family quality of life of families living with a disability.

This subject emphasises in developing core skills including global citizenship, leadership, project management and encourages students to think of macro level outcomes related to human rights.
