  • EpiClub provides a free resource pack for schools that includes a variety of tools to help support teachers education on anaphylaxis and what to do in an anaphylaxis emergency. The resource pack also includes a free demo EpiPen Training Device for you to practice with.
    As you are aware, the Public Health Nursing Service can provide anaphylaxis education sessions at your school. This pack however provides you with written information and the free trainer EpiPen etc). Just click on this link https://epiclub.co.nz/ and then click on “Resources for Schools” and sign up. If you have a student that needs an EpiPen but cannot afford it, just let me know. There are some funding streams out there.
  • Fast Trust: The Families Autism and Behavioural Support Trust. Supporting Waikato families who have a child on the autism spectrum or a child facing challenges leading to behaviour that makes access to mainstream education problematic. I have been advised from a Hamilton school that they found this service life changing for 20 of their students with varying levels of autism. The trust comes to the school with a specialised psychologist and they assess each child’s needs/behavior and create an action plan.They then support the teachers with tailor made strategies and also go into the family’s home and help them replicate the strategies there. This school has advised me that families have been so grateful and happy with the service. They have shared how they now have effective communication with their child, that their child is starting to thrive. Autistic children are not often applicable for funded supports (unless have other conditions etc), and this trust seems to be meeting some of this need. There is a wait list. See the following link for their website http://fasttrust.co.nz/.
  • Parentline is a great service that provides specialised programmes for children, parenting programmes, primary school counselling and sometimes staff education training. Some of the programmes are: dealing with the effects of domestic violence, keeping children safe from sexual abuse, dealing with aggressive behaviour through anger management, working with Maori whanau to heal and prevent impact of abuse and domestic violence, incredible years parenting course, grandparents raising grandchildren where they have been exposed to domestic violence, support groups for grandparents raising grandchildren, resilience programmes and much more. A school I talked to recently had Parentline come in and give an education session to the teachers/staff around how to respond/manage sexual violence disclosures. They found this very useful.
