Dr Andrea McGlade

MBBS FRACP MPH

General and Developmental Paediatrician

I am a dual trained paediatrician with an interest in the complex end of child health; at the intersection of medical care, development, learning, behaviour and mental health, including trauma. For most of my paediatric career I have worked with an additional layer of complexity – working with Aboriginal families – and I have a further interest in culture and anthropology. Currently I also have a paediatric clinic at the Murri School at Acacia Ridge, where I work alongside medical staff, allied health, teachers, learning support staff and family support services. 

I strongly believe that providing children and families with a 'diagnosis' is not enough and that helping children achieve their best potential is a long term journey. Parenting is difficult enough without the additional challenges that come with a child that doesn't fit the box. It is crucial to unravel the how and why each child interacts within their world and I use a self-regulation framework to both understand the inner logic of what drives their behaviour and actions, and what works for each child to be calm and best learn and achieve their goals. 

Dr McGlade remains an NDC aligned practitioner, and is now seeing patients at Paeds in a Pod phone 31772000 or email info@paedsinapod.com.au.
