Villa Maria Staff Forum – May 2014


Sue was invited to our Support Worker forum to provide our staff with a parent’s perspective of what it’s like to raise a child with a disability.

She delivered a highly detailed account of her personal journey and experiences. Our staff found Sue’s presentation very engaging, leaving staff both crying and laughing.

Her moving presentation was the highlight of the day.

 We would welcome Sue back anytime

Hi Sue and Chloe,

Thanks so much for attending our in service day. Your story was beautifully presented and gave us all an insight
to what it is like to be a parent bringing home a Down Syndrome baby.

You have equipped us with not only  empathy but  a strong sense of what can be achieved.
Chloe is an amazing young lady, a pleasure to meet and we all wish her well with all her life's endeavours.

Many thanks,

Annie Tubb
