We would like to extend a warm welcome to you,

It is our hope that you will be inspired and uplifted by our programmes, songs and books .

Maria Reid and Latasha Griffin are the team at ml educational.

Maria is a Social Educationalist with a degree in Social Education from the Institute for Social Education and Social Work, Cologne, Germany .

Maria has worked in the New Zealand Education system since the early 1990s. She has been developing and delivering programmes for students who have difficulty interacting positively and effectively with others. BodySongs, Useful Little Songs, Working with Sounds and My Own Story books have been written and produced in response to these needs.

Since those early days these resources have been used more widely, in Early Childhood Education, Disability Support Services, Elder Care, and through training courses for parents, specialized teachers ( RTLB, ORRS) and other professionals working with children.

Latasha joined Maria during this growth period and together they formed ml educational. Latasha is passionate about enhancing communication skills; she comes from a background of Corporate Training, Early Childhood and Tertiary Education. More recently Latasha has become a mother to two daughters.

We would like to invite you to contact us with any enquiries or comments

kind regards


Maria and Latasha
