    • “We are writing to you to explain what a difference that the kids club that you run has made in Arthurs life . The chance to meet with other children each week to practice his social skills with expert help has been invaluable. He looks forward to going each week and learns something new each time as the environment created is fun , structured and interesting . As parents we can gain a much needed time out for this hour and a half , knowing he is safe and well guided ,and it is so helpful to meet other parents who face similar challenges . Thank you so much . “

    • “Josh has attended groups run by Socially Speaking for a number of years. Over this time, he has learned a number of skills which have made life easier for us at home, for instance handling his frustration, coping with change, and life skills such as catching a bus and making a phone call.

      I feel targeted help such as that offered by Socially Speaking which makes life at home with Josh easier for him and the rest of the family.”

    • “Both my husband and myself feel so strongly about the benefit of the programme that you offer that we organise time off work to enable one of us to take Samuel to ensure he can attend. Samuel is learning skills that are vital for him to learn to function in all areas of life both now and in the future. There is no other programme in Christchurch that offers to teach children like Samuel the key life skills that he is learning at your programme. We have seen gains in Samuel’s behaviour since he started attending and strongly value the ongoing input he could receive through attending your group.”

    • “The Monday evening sessions have been great for Flynn. As he says himself, it’s brilliant for him to spend time with kids who have similar issues and develop his social skills in a safe and supportive environment.”

    • “One of the main benefits of the group is that he learns important social lessons there as the teachers have qualifications and training specific to the needs of the children. We love the fact that he can be part of a group where there is understanding with a desire to support. We have seen great improvement with Ryan since he started going to Kids Club and he has come a long way with the guidance of the Socially Speaking team. There is also the added benefit for us, as parents, as we are able to talk to other parents who understand the difficulties of raising a child who needs extra help.”

    • “Harry LOVES KidsClub, he has friends and has been invited to a birthday party, which is a pretty rare occurrence. He’s learned how to take turns without losing his temper every time, he’s learned to consider other people’s feelings and make positive comments about things they’ve done, he’s learned how to greet someone appropriately.”
