Research focused intervention for children living with autism - providing opportunities to succeed.

Wellington

Imagine living a life of confusion and anxiety - not being able to communicate with those around you or make sense of your world.

We are trying to change that for children living with autism here in Wellington.

Working with Victoria University of Wellington, the Autism Intervention Trust is fundraising to support a PhD student to work with children on the spectrum, their families and others who support them.

Children on the spectrum in Wellington have few options if any to access services that are funded as a matter of course overseas, so this is a fantastic opportunity to give these children the support they need and deserve.

This is a win / win solution for many families and carers supporting kids on the spectrum here in Wellington.

The programme will use evidence based behavioural approaches, will be child focused and tailored to their individual needs.

The programme will also provide the opportunity to teach everyone involved with each child: how best to communicate with them and support them.

Your support and that of others will make a very real and personal difference for the children and families we help.

We know there are so many wonderful causes out there, so thank you for thinking ours worthy of your support!

About us

Our approach is hands on and needs based. Currently we run specialised holiday and social activity programmes, and actively support early intervention and child and family centred autism services.
