Poipoia te kākano, kia puawai
Nurture the seed, and it will blossom
Waiora Tamariki is an innovative research programme and cost-free nationwide clinical service designed to promote the health and wellbeing of children on the autism spectrum and their whānau.
Based out of the Pukemanu Centre at the University of Canterbury, the team have many years of experience supporting sleep, eating/feeding, toileting, and social communication development in children on the autism spectrum, as well as enhancing caregiver mental health, meaning our families benefit from the latest evidence-based approaches.
