Feedback from previous participants… 

I went to this and it was fantastic.  There was a really good segment on ADHD and ASD type behavior.  I highly recommend the workshops for all parents.”
~ Natasha @ Autism New Zealand

“I enjoyed last night’s workshop thanks, it was informative and entertaining. I found the use of drama helped me to grasp the concepts far better than the typical listening to a lecture with a power-point display.”
~ Parent

“I found your workshop absolutely fantastic, touching & informative. The actors were brilliant.”
~ Parent

“I thought the workshop was fantastic and I am keen to attend more.  I was impressed by the skill of the actors and I liked the way the scenarios were rewound, explored, repackaged and played again.”
