Our presenters will be sharing their lived experiences of the education journeys they have travelled alongside tamariki and rangatahi with FASD in their care. Join us for a kōrero presented by much-respected Māori leaders in their fields to hear what works at school for ākonga Māori.

Dr André McLachlan Ngāti Apa (Ngāti Kauae), Muaūpoko (Ngāti Pāriri) is a clinical psychologist and certified addictions counsellor who has worked in youth services and mental health. For many years now André has led the advancement of innovative and dynamic kaupapa Māori-based therapeutic resources. He nurtures rangatahi who enter into this field and has maintained an integral role of manaakitanga for emerging Māori psychologists, both informally as a leader in clinical psychology, and formally as a lecturer for Otago University and Wintec. He continues to develop pioneering methods of engaging with whānau with complex mental health and addictions needs. André and his partner Sarah-Jane McLachlan, who is a teacher, have lived experience of tamariki with FASD in their care.

Passionate about the betterment of hapū, iwi and Māori organisations, Diana has worked in education for Te Wananga o Aotearoa and is a member of other governance boards. Her children and mokopuna have come through Te Kōhanga Reo and Kura Kaupapa o Mana Tamariki advocating for the revitalisation of Te Reo Māori.  She has lived experience around challenges faced while raising a tamaiti with FASD over the last 14 years. 

Hine Te Arorangi has grown up in Te Ao Māori, tikanga and Te Reo Māori. She has a degree in psychology and is working closely with a member of her own extended whānau with FASD.
