“to a child who is walking into a completely strange spot with a parent that they can tell is already heightened to see those familiar things like key sensory regulation and a special interest [like Mario Brothers], immediately brought us to [a place of] security, reassurance and lowered anxiety”
“I think the hardest part of having a child with a delay of any kind is the fight: The fight for services. The fight for people to understand who your child is and what they need. The fight for knowledge, because knowledge is power. And the quiet fight you have within yourself wondering if you’ve left no stone unturned.”
“The workshop was really relaxed, interactive and informative. It was really useful to learn how to approach children in distress and the tools to assist them.”
“It was great to get an idea of what families are going through as well. The stories of real-life experiences of families and kids.”
“I really like that the workshop gave me more awareness about how children who have Autism and their families can be approached in difficult situations. The information was very useful and can also be applied in my teaching as well.”
“I found the training to be interesting and I learnt a lot. I enjoyed gaining knowledge in an area that I know very little about and the interactive group discussion.”
