Raising money for therapy for awesome local children with autism. All funds raised are used to pay the modest wages of skilled therapists.

  Otago Disability Kids 4 Charity Child Welfare

Our kids receive invaluable therapy from skilled therapists earning modest wages. But, the main sources of funds we've relied on - grants applications (community, lotteries etc) - are becoming harder to secure, because of increasing numbers of charities vying for the same funds. So we are trying other approaches, to keep this project alive in our region!

This kind of therapy isn't funded by the health or education systems. Like most other disabilites-related services, it is too easy for the government to ignore.

The therapy is very empathetic, and each kid has a programme tailored to their needs. For more info about how it works, visit our website www.otagokidsautism.org

More about us

We are a group of pro-active parents in the Otago region, raising funds for therapy for children with autism. We also help organise therapy and case management, and assessments from visiting psychologists.

We're involved in a range of fundraising from small local events to grants applications.

This group started in 2004. We believe the NZ government should fund early intervention therapy for kids with autism, on the strength of the results of therapy and the benefits to the kids involved, and their families and schools.
