OUR VALUES

Expertise

Read through our collective bank of information and resources developed by professionals all over the world.

Community

We want to build a community that brings experts and families together to make things easy for each other.

Efficiency

Save time searching and researching!  Find what you need easily.  It doesn't need to be hard!

WHY?

We wanted to create long term resource that can be used in therapy and family settings.

We wanted a resource that empowers families to search and discover high quality resources online for themselves.

We decided on online based so therapists and families can access anywhere, anytime.  

We aim to reduce the time parents and therapists spend searching online for high quality resources for their children. When parents and therapists have more time, children, families and therapists all benefit. 

We want a community and space for parents and professionals to get bite sized, high quality information. We want to point our users in the right direction for expert information.

We are building an online library that is constantly updated by leading professionals in the field.

I wanted to create a resource library that would reduce my time, be accessible for families and something that would be easy to update (not like a word doc or PDF).

A huge chunk of my time was being taking up sending and directing people to high quality resources I had found online. I wanted to spend my time seeing children - not searching the internet! Tim agreed with me and the ball started rolling towards a project which is now LHA!
