Finding Her Voice

A talkative, cheeky and resilient little girl, who was once selectively mute, has recently graduated from our Therapeutic Day Program in Toowoomba. Her teacher had described her as ‘resistant and sullen and uncooperative’ but is now delighted to work with a small person who is ‘fun in class’ and ‘a bright little thing’. Her carer says that she has gone from throwing monster tantrums to using appropriate words to describe how she is feeling when she is overwhelmed by her circumstances.
