Connect With Us

The rewards and unique challenges that come with neurodiversity shape relationships for our clients with their family, friends, and members of the community. We empathise with families and understand the frustration and feelings of isolation that can come with caring for a child with additional needs. We believe it is a shared responsibility to create environments where neurodivergent children can flourish. This begins with fostering authentic relationships with a child’s support network and ensuring that relationships are underpinned by understanding, empowerment, and acceptance. SeeChange aims to collaborate with families and connect with other services to create a new way of being in our community where everyone is truly valued.
