A little about Spear and Arrow

Every child deserves to reach their full potential. And that potential is often far beyond what many people can see. Some children need more specific and tailored support to reach that potential, and Spear & Arrow was created to provide just that.

We know how it’s usually done, but we’re breaking the mould. With more than 20 years of experience in education and disability services behind her, our founder Chantelle saw a better way.

“The foundation of our work is a deep understanding of the things that will make a real difference to the children and young people we work with. We work toward realistic, achievable outcomes, and know that small, daily actions lead to big changes.” 

Chantelle Ryan, CEO and Founder Spear and Arrow

“I just wanted to share with you. As a mum of a child that can’t communicate and tell you if something happens it takes a lot for me to let people care for my son I also had a horrendous experience in the past with another company where my son was left at home alone after this I was more worried then ever at letting him go without me. Thanks to your amazing staff Jarrod, Morgan, Tori, Maddie and Bailey that have all shown my son care and respect I feel joy when he goes on supports knowing that he will be safe and shown respect. You have a amazing staff of support workers and my family and I want to Thankyou all so much.”


“Of all the Allied Health professionals who have worked with my child, Chantelle has by far made the biggest positive difference in their behaviour and social skills, and in the shortest time. Chantelle isn’t afraid of the hard work involved in helping children understand and process thoughts, experiences and emotions. I highly recommend Chantelle for her abilities, professionalism, and the care she takes with each of her clients. Her passion for this industry goes above and beyond what’s expected.”



“Hey Channy, Just wanted to say a thank you for your work with B and I. You already have had a positive impact on his life and I can see he is taking on board new concepts. And I’m learning too so thanks!”



Chantel has only been working with my son for 3 sessions so far, and all I can say is WOW! She is amazing and so far we are seeing progress already.
She has welcomed us with open arms and has taken everything in that we have told her If you’re looking for a behavioural therapist who is actually going to work with you, Chantel is who you need.
