Parent/Carer Feedback

We’ve received some fantastic feedback form parents and carers of kids that have participated in the Yawardani Jan-ga program. 

At the 5 session, 10 session and then 3,6,12 month mark. Some of our young people come back in for a set of three top up sessions, others may come back for ten sessions and others we may not see again for sometimes over a year, if at all. Its always really nice to hear what our families are seeing and how our young people are going.

“Thanks for reaching out. son absolutely loved his ‘horses’ day’ when he was doing the program. I noticed a difference when he was doing it and he loved just coming to ‘talk to the horses. He was doing well for a period but has regressed a little this term and we are just working through this (expected to be a bit of a challenge into next term as his teacher is leaving and he has developed a strong relationship with her). Is there a chance for him to go on a waitlist to do the program again at all? He thrived more when this was part of his routine. Son is his happiest when he is around animals so the Yawardani program was so great for him”.
Male 7yr. old.
