For families living in Australia who do not have NDIS funding

Now & Next is an 8-session interactive program that can help you to make a positive difference for your child.

94% of parents said: ‘Our child is learning new skills’

95% of parents said: ‘Our child has positive family relationships’

91% of parents said: ‘Our child is making choices and communicating’*

*Parents who have completed the Now and Next program reported on the achievements of their child outcomes at the end of the program.

We know that parents and carers make the biggest difference in their child’s life. Not by doing more, but by achieving more with less effort. Your valuable time will be well spent because we measure the outcomes and it works.

Join the program and you will:

  • Learn how to achieve more with less effort
  • Use your strengths to make small changes that create a big impact for your child
  • Learn how to increase the well-being and resilience of your entire family
  • Learn strategies that have worked for other families
  • Use our practical toolkit to get the best for your child when funding is limited

Program Overview

Through interactive and engaging activities, you will:

  • Session 1: Create a long term vision and set goals and prioritise goals for your child, family and self-using our unique Pictability™ tool which will lay down the foundations for a positive future for your child
  • Session 2 and 3: Use our Goal to Action™ coaching tool to set three goals for you and your child (and reach them!)
  • Session 4: Identify your signature strengths and learn how to use them to achieve your goals
  • Session 5: Focus on the areas where you can make the biggest difference to your child and family’s life using the Now and Next™ Mindfulness colouring-in book
  • Session 6: Understand ‘flourishing’ and which practices can enhance well being for different people, then learn how to increase the well-being and resilience of yourself, your child and your family
  • Session 7: Learn how to partner and create positive relationships with professionals, thereby increasing your personal agency, well-being and family resilience
  • Session 8: Review your toolkit and practice situations in which tools can be most effective
