The parents who meet and do the work to run this group volunteer their time, to ensure that therapy is available in our area for our children and those who need it. Some of the involved parents go to regular meetings. All parents involved are sometimes asked to help in some way with organising or fundraising.
The group chair is Rainy Fraser. The secretary is Kjesten Nilsson.
The postal address is PO Box 5783, Dunedin 9058.
The Central and Southern Autism Support Group
Our charity is an inclusive group of parents spread throughout Central Otago and Southland.
We do our own fundraising for therapy and teacher aides, and organise grant applications and other sources of funding. A diagnosis for your child isn't necessary to be involved in the group. Most of our families live in or near Queenstown, Wanaka and Cromwell.
