AboutFace International, Toronto's Hospital
for Sick Children and the Children's Rehabilitation Centre of Essex
County have used the Making Faces
program and have had exceptional results. Parents, teachers and
health-care professionals have all commented on the positive changes
they see in the children.
Parents and children complete a questionaire at
the start and end of each workshop to assess the program and monitor
changes and attitudes. "Parents tell us they can see the changes
in their child. Teachers see it too. A child who rarely spoke before
attending classes starts asking questions and entering discussions.
It's wonderful to hear," says Michael.
