How We Help Children with Autism

We help autistic children to develop social minds. We start with an in-depth analysis of sensory perception and on-going issues in the social-emotional cognition, and offer advice and social-cognitive autism therapy to improve their wellbeing, academic success, and social-emotional intelligence.


Natasha is extremely passionate about helping people with autism, my son thoroughly enjoyed his sessions which helped to boost his confidence and social skills.

We have no hesitation in recommending Natasha. It was really a miracle for us to meet her. She carefully observed our child and actively provided appropriate advice. Her advice for our child was a great help for us, allowing us to understand and support our child in the right direction. When being with her, our child began to get better and better and made great progress. Above all, we can feel that she is not only devoted to children; she cares and teaches them with true love. We thank Natasha with our whole heart.

Parents of a 6 year old boy, New Zealand

As a mother of an unusual child, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Natasha, who worked with my son. I have not had any previous exposure to autism professionally or through family or life experiences and therefore felt really inadequate and helpless thinking something is wrong with my parenting skills or, what’s worse, with my son. Natasha, with her knowledge and experience, helped me understand my child and his uniqueness, to the point where I started to appreciate him for who he is and feel really proud and fond of him! More importantly, of course, than my ‘journey’, was the help she gave him to cope with the world he was born into. He is doing amazingly well and progresses from one little breakthrough to …

another, and I do feel it was her who put us on this positive path. She is a lucky person who has found her calling in life and genuinely enjoys finding an individual approach to each challenge and gets reward from seeing her charges succeed. I have seen it many times when she worked with my son. Unlike some professional lawyers or tax advisers (I myself am a tax advisor) she shares her knowledge and experience freely, genuinely putting the welfare and happiness of struggling children and their families above all else. When their family made the decision to emigrate to New Zealand, I cried for a week! Once again, I am really grateful to her and am sure other children who need her warmth and attention, will benefit greatly.
