Parenting Support


Parent to Parent New Zealand Inc. is a national, not-for-profit organisation set up in 1983 by a small group of parents and professionals who believed in the value of parents supporting parents when faced with the challenge of parenting a child with a disability, health impairment, or special need.


The Halberg Trust aims to support all children with a disability if they want to be involved in active leisure or recreation of their choice, alongside their peers in an inclusive environment.


ArticlesAsperger's Syndrome CCS Cleft New Zealand Down Syndrome Halberg Trust Parent to Parent Prader Willi Syndrome Association Disabilities have a life-long effect upon individuals, parents and families.

If the disability affects a child, there is a long period of adjustment, rehabilitation and coming to terms with the disability by all concerned. This is not an easy path to travel.
