'Takiwatanga' is the Maori word for autism, it means 'In his/her own time and space.' Our charity wishes to give autistic children just that, the time and space to develop their social skills, build their self-esteem and learn to recognise and manage their emotions.
Takiwatanga Support Services was set up by a group of parents of children with autism and/or social anxiety issues, as a way to provide support to others seeking a kind, non-judgemental space, to discuss their problems and gain help with all the red tape restricting their child’s access to the services they need. Our Parent Support Groups run once a month and parents can choose to join the group chat or book a 1:1 appointment with one of our volunteers to discuss their issues in depth.
Takiwatanga also run activity sessions for children with autism and social anxiety issues, centred around providing a calm space for the children to make friends and learn social skills, through mindfulness, interacting with nature, yoga and Lego therapy.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
