Auckland Dyspraxia Support Trust presents a month full of information for parents…

The Government is currently changing allowances and benefits for kids with Dyspraxia.  When combined with the changes to the classification of Dyspraxia (and other conditions) that is coming up, a lot of families will soon be worse of.

Auckland Dyspraxia Support Trust are pleased to have Denise Gledhill from Health and Disability Advocacy NZ talking to parents this Tuesday 15-May-12 at 7:30pm at the Phab Centre.  Denise can help parents understand know more about their rights when using health and disability services, understand how to get questions answered or make a complaint, or help to locate an independent advocate.

If you haven’t used an advocate, then you should be aware that the right advocate can be invaluable.

Gold coin donations are welcomed to help cover expenses.
