Act for Kids is an Australian charity providing free therapy and support services to children and families who have experienced, or are at risk of child abuse and neglect. In the last year, Act for Kids provided prevention assistance to 2945 kids, early intervention for 10,475 kids, and intensive therapy for 969 kids.
When Act for Kids first meet Macie, she was only 8 years old. At a young age, Macie had witnessed many years of domestic and family violence within her family home. As a result she was struggling with severe flashbacks, nightmares and anxiety as a result of the traumatic experience.
Macie and her mum have managed to remove themselves from the situation and are now safe. However, Macie was still very traumatised from the experience and as a result she had suffered severe stutter and had made her speech impossible to understand and was falling behind at school due to the language difficulties and anxiety. The Integrated Therapy team at Act for Kids had worked closely with Macie and worked on her speech and language, with the goal of helping her catch up to her school peers. The team also provided Macie a psychologist, who worked with her on reducing her anxiety and worked on strategies to help improve her speech and her confidence.
