The outlook for 2017 is very exciting, both with the development of New Zealand's first ever all-Aspie Conference, and with the prospect of our becoming a training provider, for people who work with folk on the Autism Spectrum. We love doing this work as general levels of knowledge and understanding are low and people become fascinated as we expound on our favourite subject!
With an extra day in our working week, we will achieve even more. Following on the Government's requirement (foreshaowed), Leith is pursuing Registration as a qualified Social Worker, and Julie has embarked on a course in Psychology and Counselling with to gain an associated qualification. This then "requires" that we should at last receive a proper wage for our work and a recognition of our professional status and expertise.
