A Message from Jacki Hall from the Parental Stress Centre...

Are you a parent of a child with autism or work with parents who are?
We wanted to let you know that we have created a brand new facebook support group for parents with ASD children where we are providing FREE support and resources to help parents navigate through the stress of parenting a child on the spectrum.
As part of this free group we are regularly:
  • Educating parents on tools and strategies to alleviate their stress and avoid depression and anxiety
  • Help to manage common child behaviours including aggression
  • Teach evidence based behaviour management techniques and strategies
  • Teach parents how to develop a healthy, strong and positive mindset in their child.
  • Help them to avoid overwhelm, anger, guilt and the myriad of emotions that parents feel as they navigate the world of autism.
We also have a FREE Webinar that parents can join that teaches the fundamentals of what triggers stress, depression and anxiety in parents and autistic children and how to alleviate that stress.
Please click on any of the links to find out more.

We look forward to supporting as many parents as possible to alleviate their stress.

Big Walk for Little Kids

Camp Quality is encouraging South Australians to walk big for kids facing cancer this October. 

National children’s cancer charity, Camp Quality, has launched ‘Big Walk For Little Kids’ – a brand-new, COVID-safe walking challenge to raise much-needed funds to support children facing cancer.

The inaugural event suits all fitness levels and asks everyday Aussies to challenge themselves to walk 25km, 50km or 100km during the month of October.

Big Walk For Little Kids has been created in line with the ever-evolving and varied restrictions in each state. Australians anywhere can get involved and walk throughout the month of October in many different ways, on the treadmill, outdoors, as an individual, with a friend or as part of a virtual team.

Funds raised will help Camp Quality support kids and their families facing cancer with adapted services and programs throughout COVID and to ensure no child misses out when face to face programs resume.

There are some great prizes to be won too, including a $1,000 Freedom voucher and 5 x $250 Running Bare vouchers.

Participants can sign up online and get friends, family members, school or work mates to sponsor their efforts to help raise funds for Camp Quality to give kids facing cancer an opportunity to get away from it all. Participants can form virtual teams and track kilometres online using Fitbit or Strava. Every step taken helps Camp Quality get closer to their goal of sending 800 kids facing cancer on Camp.
