Mummel Road’s making a difference


Mummel Road provides learning and behaviour support for children with developmental disabilities and other additional needs.

And, it’s something founder, director and lead practitioner Emily Baitch is extremely passionate about.

“My professional career started in 2003 when I worked full-time as a primary school teacher,” the mother-of-three said.

“Over the following years, I worked in different schools, both nationally and internationally.

“It was exciting, challenging and incredibly rewarding.

“But, after having children, including my eldest who received an early diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder, I opened a family day care.

“I was able to utilise my skills and knowledge with child development while earning some money in my own home.

“It was a flexible form of employment for me.

“Then, after moving to the Hunter Valley, I was interested in expanding my opportunities in business ownership.

“This interest propelled me to begin Mummel Road – Positive Behaviour Support.

“I now employ full-time and part-time employees.”

The winner of the Outstanding New Business category at the 2022 Hunter Local Business Awards continues to go from strength-to-strength from its Bolwarra base.

“Mummel Road – Positive Behaviour Support has become a recognised brand in the Maitland and broader Hunter Valley region,” Emily said.

“I have worked tirelessly to build a community for families who have a child or children with complex behavioural needs.

“So, I’m immensely proud of what I have achieved in two years… and I feel excited and inspired about what the future will hold for me and the Mummel Road team.”
