    Very exciting proposition given by Thorkil Sonne , Michael Fieldhouse and Cheryl Dissanayake.
    Love the Dandelion analogy…. so true that context is crucial and the “ground” needs to be appropriate to maximise the development of the individuals’ potentials… ASD or other as mentioned.

    Fantastic concept and what is more amazing is that it is to find actualisation in Australia… now .. not to remain an ideal/idea but a reality.
