Testimonials from some of our service users

Wow, after watching the microboards early years info session.. it looks like such a great support system to have in place. 

I'm really looking forward to learning more and having a microboard set up for my son. 

Couldn't come at a better time.

I would like to thank Jaquie for all the amazing work she has done - she continues to be a huge inspiration to others. I know I wouldn’t be here today without her leadership.

I told Jacqui I’d been looking for a solution for my daughter’s ongoing care for the last 8-10 years; I was introduced to the idea of “Circles of Support” by a church friend and most parents I speak to haven’t even heard about that. So I consider myself to be a little ‘ahead of the pack’ but on Friday I realised my vista was only a drop in the ocean. I was so excited by Jacqui’s talk, especially that the few strategies presented are actually achievable - from admittedly, my naive point of view!

I did training a couple of years ago and I'm still talking about it.

I can honestly say that I have never enjoyed a course more than this one!
