Testimonials

“Words can’t describe how thankful I am that we found your organisation.  You have saved my life and sanity since engaging with you.  Finding someone to care for my son that understands him has been impossible until now.  My son raves about your Carers and its no secret he doesn’t make friends easily.  He was jumping out of his skin each day he attended vacation care.  You have truly warmed my heart to think a Mum suffering just like me is strong enough to start up such an important organisation for our misunderstood little ones. You’ve created “me time” a term that was non existent in our house. I would highly recommend your organisation to any family with children on the spectrum”. Parent AC of Ningi

“I came across ASD Services via Facebook and from that point on they have offered our family support and services.  Our son has been meeting with his ASD Care Mentor weekly, which has enabled him to have another person to spend time with, discuss issues and he has learnt to skateboard, paint & play guitar all well outside his comfort zone   Our son is very settled after these visits and looks forward to the next session and these small changes are making home life that little bit it easier.  The ASD Care mentor is calm quiet and extremely nurturing to his needs.

 Many people do not understand the difficulties that a child with ASD faces on a daily basis and the difficulties parents face in accessing affordable, sustainable services for our children.  With ASD Care Services on the Sunshine Coast we are one step closer to making life a little easier for us all”.…..Parent NM of Buderim

“I just want to thank you for your services. It was nice feeling confident trusting the ASD Care Support Person with my daughter. I’m hoping to continue with this service. The ASD Support Person was professional, confident and patient, all very good qualities. We will use your service again next school holidays. Thanks again! ”  …..Parent SS of Nambour

 ”Just thought I’d provide a bit of feedback to you that I received from the educator on your employee’s support of our client’s son.   Your employee fitted in well and got along famously with our clients son despite the fact they had not met previously.  Your employee was a great presence to have in the room.  He was confident that if our client required something, your employee was there to assist especially if he was busy with another student.  He felt that your employee was interested in the subject and that he was the perfect match for our son’s client.  Thanks for your ongoing assistance”. … Service Provider
