About HRC Te Otu Mātua
311017076-low.jpg

Located in Christchurch, HRC Te Otu Mātua is a specialist residential intervention
that supports students who experience neurodevelopmental challenges such as
ASD, intellectual impairments, specific learning disabilities, ADHD, etc.  

 

To experience success in education these young people need to feel safe,
make connections, and learn ways to manage their emotions.  Our kaiako (staff)
have been trained in the Purposeful Use of Daily Life Events (DLE)

which is a relational child and youth care approach.

We believe that every interaction with every student by every staff member
has the potential to make a difference for that student, and we are intentional
in creating a therapeutic environment.

 

The student, whānau, and referrer become valued members of a team
working together to give your child opportunities to thrive personally
and academically in a dynamic supportive community.

The highly skilled and passionate kaiako are led by our Senior Leadership Team
