I regularly encounter children and whanau really struggling to see through the tunnel let alone be hopeful, as they do their best to teach nurture and grow a child on the spectrum. It’s a really hard job and and takes a lot of resilience. These strategies within Maria’s work enhance not only a child’s ability to understand their emotions, reactions and feelings – but that of their family members too!
