My Say Survey

Recently, Monash University Emeritus Professor Bruce Tonge launched the MY SAY survey in Melbourne to help researchers gather information on what it is like to parent a child with special needs in the year 2013.


Professor Tonge (Child Psychiatrist) stated at the launch that: “The extra demands and day-to-day stresses of parenting a child with a disability are enormous”.


I would encourage parents to visit this link http://mysay.org.au/parents/ if you would like to participate.


I would encourage professionals to visit this link http://mysay.org.au/professionals/ if you would also like to make a positive contribution.


Completing the survey online gives you the opportunity to register your details to be part of the project.


Once the survey is finished, free parenting and professional support will be offered across Victoria through the “Evidence Based” Internationally acclaimed /Stepping Stones/ Program. /Stepping Stones/ is part of the Triple P- Positive Parenting Program and is designed for parents of children with disabilities.


The Triple P - Positive Parenting Program is one of the most effective evidence-based parenting programs in the world, backed up by more than 30 years of ongoing research. The program provides simple and practical strategies to help parents confidently manage their children’s behaviour, prevent problems developing and build strong, healthy relationships. http://www.triplep-staypositive.net


I have completed the survey which was quick and easy. I hope to participate in the PPP Positive Parenting Training Program in the near future.
