A friend has forwarded a Google news alert to me about a new initiative for Conductive Education in New Zealand. Craig Nielsen, parent of a child with cerebral palsy hopes to establish a new centre at Taranaki, a region in the North West of North Island.
“We want to establish a centre or a facility that can deal with children from birth or a young age through to include their school age,” he said.
There are currently three families travelling to Hamilton. “We know of, through our research, between six and 12 that could use a centre here. That’s why we want to try and find others in the community that we don’t know of.”
I wish the best of luck to all concerned.
