Initially this site was for schools and
teachers. It became apparent that there was a lack of training and
information for teachers in not only Australia, but other countries as
well. Many educators found it difficult to find the time in the day,
to have balance in their own lives, to

allergies and alternative therapies as we must keep our minds open to
other's opinions, especially if backed up with positive results or

associations that are negative & people/companies that put others down in the
face of scientific evidence to the contrary. I will not condone
religious zealots opinions that put the problems behaviours of special
kids squarely on the shoulders of the parents. Neither will I condone
people who regularly use their 'difference' as a crutch or as an
excuse, without trying to obtain help or instigating strategies
suggested by professionals that they are dealing with.
Unfortunately for many, they are unable
to afford to regularly see psychologists & counsellors. But it must

relevant authorities. Sometimes there is a wait, but at least you've
made some forward steps to gaining the help for your child or for
