Working together with the Nepalese Community

Nepalese community

This year Positive Partnerships is working with the Nepalese community. We recently held our first event and it was great to see so many parents in attendance. They were a really engaged group and asked many insightful questions around diagnosis and support services. A local father came to share his story of understanding autism and going through the process of diagnosis with his daughter. The sharing of his story generated great discussion around the individualities and strengths of young people on the spectrum and the strategies that can help children to cope, learn and be part of their community.
