MyTime catches up at Altona Meadows

Posted by Kerrie Gottliebsen | 29/02/12

The cooler weather and gentle rain added to the relaxed vibe at the Altona Meadows MyTime group following a weekend of 35 degree plus temperatures.  Although dads and carers are encouraged to come along, today it was mums at the Monday morning session. 

The parents bring their children along for a play and Tweddle play helper Suzanne introduces activities and different sensory toys for the children to experience.  The large play space is light and stimulating, although today it was a bit wet for the outdoor playground.

MyTime is about time for you and talking about the things that you know other people in the group will understand.  In today’s group parents talked about passions and interests that tend to get lost in the hectic schedule of having children with additional needs.  

Rachel talked about training for her upcoming triathlon.  Amanda spoke about how running allowed her time to experience a bit of space.  Danni shared her interest in kick starting a scrapbooking project and Marie, a music teacher, plays both the trumpet and the piano.    A hot coffee over some mandala colouring sessions for relaxation were enjoyed and Jacqui from the Western Autistic School dropped in for a chat.

Yarns around diagnosis, developmental delay, emotions and frustrations (both parent and child) were shared and a common thread of dedication, passion and hard work emerged. For more information on coming along to MyTime, phone Eleni Matskarofski on (03) 8387 0638 or visit the MyTime page here
