As well as courses support our families such as Renew, Individual Education Plan (IEP) and Support Parent courses, we organise special events such as family days and mums’ pamper days.

In Northland we have a six-weekly coffee group that meets at the CCS Disability Action Centre and often has a quest speaker followed by shared morning tea. There is also an Autism Mums coffee group that meets once a month on a Wednesday at Whangarei Macdonalds.

Unique to Northland are our Sibling Activity days every two months, which include horse riding and a picnic, indoor golf, laser strike and bowling, a beach day and picnic, and day at the pools with a BBQ. The children who have been to Sibling Days really enjoy the day out and catching up.

A coffee group is starting in Kerikeri for 2016, and will also incorporate fun activities, guest speakers and pamper days.
