Focus Dietetics provides nutrition and dietitian services to people with a disability in Canberra and surrounding areas. We mainly work with NDIS participants and their families, carers and support providers to make positive lifestyle changes and achieve realistic nutrition goals. We work with people of all ages and with a range of disabilities. Our dietitian will adapt communication and education strategies to suit a person’s unique needs, and is committed to offering support throughout the nutrition journey.
Our dietitian, Shannon Butler, completed her Master of Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of Canberra. She has a background in disability support, and it was due to experiences in this role that she chose to become a qualified dietitian specifically for people living with disabilities. Shannon believes there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to a healthy lifestyle, and that all foods can be enjoyed as a part of a balanced diet. She also knows that having a disability can make it harder to make successful improvements to personal nutrition, so she is passionate about setting realistic goals and strategies and working closely with you and your support network to help you achieve them.
