“Overall, the ENVISAGE program allowed me to stop, take a break, and reflect on being a mum to a child with exceptional needs. It also allowed me the opportunity to get to know other parents who have had similar experiences, being able to feel safe amongst a group of people who “get it” was so important.”

We are currently recruiting service providers to a research study on ENVISAGE Service Providers. We want to determine the effectiveness of ENVISAGE Service Providers to (i) increase service providers’ knowledge of, and attitudes towards, skills and self-efficacy to apply contemporary evidence-informed holistic, strengths-based, function-promoting, and family-centred approaches, and support the translation of these key ideas into clinical practice, and (ii) enhance service providers' practice by providing a vehicle and tools for how to better support families.
