Until recently, Taranaki kids aged 0-6 years old, with motor disabilities and their families had to travel hundreds of kilometres, or even relocate, to attend Conductive Education centres in Hamilton or Wellington. They did it – because these parents believe Conductive Education to be the best thing to ever have happened to their families. We believed we could do better for families in our community, by establishing our own Conductive Education Centre here in Taranaki.
Established in 2014 to bring this much needed service to our region, we successfully launched from our leased space at Westown School in August 2017, since opening and with little publicity we have 20 children using our service. Our enrolled children have accessed over 800 regular, intensive Early Intervention (age 0-6) and school age (5-14) sessions.
We are a registered charitable trust that is committed to keeping cost to families accessible and require community support towards our $250,000 annual expenses.
It is our strategic goal is to achieve significant government funding similar to existing New Zealand Conductive Education providers. Until this is achieved, we are committed to keeping cost to families accessible and require community support towards our annual expenses and making our service sustainable.
Thank you for helping us to make Taranaki and New Zealand a more inclusive, empowered, supportive community.
We are proudly affiliated to the New Zealand Foundation for Conductive Education.
