The Trust was formed in 2004 by a group of Wellington parents all doing ABA therapy with their children. They formed the Trust to give themselves and other families, support and guidance with implementing home-based therapy programmes.
We have achieved a lot since then. For the last five years we have secured funding to support early intervention therapies. Our holiday programme, unique in Wellington, is now in its fourth year.
Members of the trust have firsthand experience of autism and what it’s like to care for someone with autism. We totally believe in the value of effective early intervention and the difference it can make to the long term quality of life for children and their families.
Our parents know how isolating it can be to have a child with autism and would like to invite other parents and family members to join us. We meet regularly and when possible organise autism-friendly social activities.
