Back in mid 2019, a Sydney family travelled all the way down to Melbourne by car to participate in a Weekend Program. This wasn’t the typical family that came to see me. Most families are struggling to keep the peace, and their kids are overindulging, but this family agreed that gaming was taking over. Matt is on the Autism spectrum with other complex factors as well.
Their story was the focus of an ABC Radio National Life Matters episode. After the program, Mum and Matt were hopeful and we got off to a good start. Mum recently had a chat to MamaMia to share her story and reflect on the past 9 months and the sustainable changes they have seen.
