Twins Tina & Tano: New Book To Help Maltese Kids With Autism

Twins Tina & Tano: New Book To Help Maltese Kids With Autism
May 30 2024 Share

“It-Tewmin Tina and Tano” is a newly published children’s book in Maltese, written by Olivia Galea Seychell. This book aims to help parents and professionals support autistic children in understanding their autism diagnosis.

The inspiration for “It-Tewmin Tina and Tano” came from a social media post by a concerned mother who sought advice on explaining to her child that he is on the autism spectrum. Olivia Galea Seychell, a psychologist, was moved by this concern. Encouraged by her autistic son, Beppe Caruana, who is also a children’s book author, Olivia decided to create a story that would make the concept of autism accessible and understandable for young readers.

Illustrated by the talented autistic artist Luke Briffa, “It-Tewmin Tina and Tano” brings to life the journey of twin siblings, Tina and Tano, as they learn about what it means to be autistic. The narrative is crafted to resonate with children, providing them with a relatable and comforting perspective on their unique way of experiencing the world.

More than just a story, this book is a tool designed to facilitate important conversations about autism between parents, professionals, and children. By explaining what happens in the brain when someone is autistic, it helps demystify the condition and fosters a sense of acceptance and self-awareness in young readers.

“It-Tewmin Tina and Tano” is a valuable addition to the resources available for those navigating the complexities of an autism diagnosis. It offers a compassionate and informative approach to understanding autism, making it a useful resource for both parents and professionals.

Through this book, storytelling becomes a means to create a more inclusive and understanding world for all children. “It-Tewmin Tina and Tano” stands out as an essential guide for helping autistic children understand and embrace their diagnosis.

In Ħal Kirkop, a new promise to residents is set to be fulfilled with the extension and renovation of Ġnien Rousset. This announcement was made by Parliamentary Secretary for Public Works, Omar Farrugia, during the signing of an agreement between the Department of Public Works and the Ħal Kirkop Local Council. The project will see an investment of €400,000.

The garden’s upgrades will include new paving and curbs, specially designed wooden benches, and a new lighting system featuring modern lamps and additional low-level lights to enhance the area’s beauty. A new, modern-designed fountain will be added, along with free public Wi-Fi. Furthermore, the garden will have a new children’s play area and more parking spaces. Existing trees, which provide ample shade, will be preserved, and the green footprint will be expanded with colorful flower beds.

All access points to the garden from surrounding sidewalks will be accessible to persons with disabilities. Omar Farrugia remarked, “This beautiful area of the country has unique characteristics, and while we will preserve those, we will continue to add value to these surroundings with green and open spaces for families. This government is committed to continuing to invest in these communities, and in Ħal Kirkop, we will provide families with another beautiful garden, part of a series of projects that will benefit the residents of Kirkop and the surrounding area.”

Mayor Terence Agius of Ħal Kirkop expressed his gratitude to the Department of Public Works for this much-needed project, stating that he looks forward to its completion.
