What our members say...

NATP is a growing organisation where members can access peer support to help their families through difficult times, but also celebrate the little successes as well for our children.

The African proverb says “It takes a village to raise a child.” NATP has created that village for families of children who have experienced early life trauma and families with neurodivergent children.
