Kia ora everyone,
Brrrr! I’ve certainly noticed the change in temperature over the last month. My body is climatising back to New Zealand winters. I trust you are all keeping warm over these winter months.
School holidays can often be challenging times for families and whanau. The change and / or absence of routine can be triggering. We are not always well prepared for what children present to us emotionally, mentally or physically. Perhaps you are feeling relieved that the school term is back into swing or maybe your child struggles with the pressure and timetables that school places on them. Either way, if you have an issue, please make contact via email or phone. I’m here to support you and help you. Remember a problem shared, is a problem halved.
If you are interested in finding out more about FASD then the online training module on the Matua Raki website is excellent. You can register and then just do bits of the module as time allows as it saves your progress, so you can return to it when you can. https://www.matuaraki.org.nz/initiatives/fetal-alcohol-spectrum-disorder-fasd/190
