Parent to Parent Support in New Zealand
Since the DFNZ was established we have received a constant flow of emails from parents that are asking for support beyond what we can offer through our website. In response to this we have established a relationship with Parent to Parent New Zealand Inc.
Through their network of regional groups and trained volunteer Support Parents they can provide information and support to families of dyslexic children.
Specifically, they can provide contact with volunteer Support Parents with a similar personal experience, who understand the challenges, frustrations and special joy that comes from parenting a dyslexic child. Parent to Parent also offer a programme for siblings, family activities, seminars and workshops. To support families in the education system, IEP (Individual Education Plan) seminars are provided throughout New Zealand.
If you need support of this nature OR if you would like to be trained to be able to provide this support to others via Parent to Parent please contact them through their website, or phone toll free 0508 236 236. Training dates are available from the events section of our website.
