PSN and Fruitvale School have been working together over the past 18 months piloting and evaluating an innovative model called Riroriro.
Riroriro is designed to nurture new entrants with dysregulated behaviours and prepare them to fit into an ordinary classroom. Our Family Works team provided a counsellor/play therapist who worked with both the children and the teachers.
Our very own Amanda Hunter undertook an evaluation of the pilot which is available as a full report here:
