Leonie Reisberg, Director Kidslink Kidslink has been running for almost 17 years. It is a social/emotional program for children and teens who are struggling to find a comfortable place socially for themselves at school and in the world at large. Children and teens come to Kidslink and join a small (4-6) group of peers that meets once a week along the school calendar. In the group they experience sharing, connecting and having fun alongside learning "how it happens" We use a variety of modalities so that it's not boring and addresses different styles of learning. Children and teens give each other constructive feedback about behaviours in the group and receive modelling and encouragement from the therapist to try new ways that will work better for them. We find that there is an increase of self esteem, an increase in enjoyment in their life and a new skill set that they can take out into the world.

Martial Methods is a specialised martial arts program developed for children aged 3-18 which utilises the disciplines of martial arts to facilitate children’s development. Martial Methods is an evidence-based martial arts program developed by occupational therapists and martial arts specialist to combine the best of both worlds. The systematic influence of meditation, rhythmic breathing and relaxation generate skills helping with self-regulation and behavioural control. Children learn to “stop”, “wait”, “think” and then “do”, incorporating notions of mindfulness and assisting in their development of self-control. Children must adhere to group etiquette and receive constant group reinforcement to “do your best” whilst also receiving mutual help and feedback from coaches, encouraging self-assessment of their performance and behaviour. Research from the University of Sydney has found that Martial Methods differs from other physical activities in their effect on children. Martial Methods is proven by years of consistent research to improve classroom performance and playground behaviour in participating children, this being widely recognised by parents and educators as well.
MissAdventure MissAdventure is a movement for girls to inspire them into the world of action sports, adventure and the outdoors so that they learn firsthand that their bodies are so much more than just what they look like, that they are capable, strong and resilient. The idea is that by instilling the spirit of adventure early, MissAdventure can empower girls to carry themselves through the storm of adolescence, help them navigate the vicious culture of comparison on social media and teach them intrinsic self worth in what at times can feel like an increasingly superficial world.
Nature Play SA In a short period of time, childhood has evolved into something most of us wouldn’t recognise. If we pause, our own experience of childhood is likely to look very different to that of our children. A number of societal changes have combined to brew the perfect storm. We lead busy lives. As working parents, we look to structured activities and new technologies to help us manage our time. Backyards have been reduced to courtyards and there’s a growing fear for our children’s safety. While it may feel like we’re making gains, what we’ve lost is the space to play. To create, imagine and be bored. To spend time in nature, engaging all of our senses, socialise and, most importantly, learn. Current research is telling us that our children are not as happy, healthy or emotionally resilient as they once were. Language and physical delays are on the rise, as well as growing uncertainty amongst our children when they spend time in the natural world – something that should bring joy, calmness, clarity and freedom. Nature Play SA are a small team that works hard to empower parents, educators and our broader community with the knowledge to bring...
