Every child has the right to be supported with their learning and reach their full potential. Conductive Education should not have to fundraise to keep this wonderful group running.

Taranaki needs these services funded here to help these children and families, I've been lucky enough to meet Craig Neilson and his son Zack to see how much of a benefit it has brought to Zacks life. Everyone that works at this organization here in New Plymouth works tirelessly for every dollar they receive. These families shouldn't have to travel out of the region to get the help they require.

Jasmine Bisset (New Plymouth, 2020-08-03)


They need funding

All kids deserve an education that is suited to their needs.

Eloise Hay (New Plymouth, 2020-08-03)


I'm signing because my son - now 13 - benefited from 4 years of attending Conductive Education in Auckland. So few options are available for our Cerebral Palsy kids that we must allow these centres to continue. Neuroplasticity is real, you use it, your work it, you build capability. Our kids need therapy to become tax contributors, to get meaningful paid work and for health and happiness. It is times our Government stopped throwing our differently abled kids on the scrap heap of society and helped us become the best that they can be.

Merryn Straker (Arkles Bay, 2020-08-03)


We need this in our community!!! Craig is an amazing father who is trying to do his best for his son plus others who are affected by this!!

Frances McCurdy (New Plymouth , 2020-08-03)


People have put there heart and sole in to establishing these centres and would be foolish to close them and leave the people who need no where to turn

Matt Sandford (Hawera, 2020-08-03)


conductive education has been a huge help with our grandaughter who has develomental delay and dyspraxia. They are supportive of the children and their whanau. Our children need this for their well being.

Suzanne hartigan (waitara, 2020-08-03)

A necessary service

Denise newton (Stratford , 2020-08-03)


My two-year old daughter goes to Conductive weekly. She loves it and we learn how to encourage her physical development at home. We only see our VNT at the hospital every 4-6 months. This is not fulfilling their duty of care for a child of our daughters age. Conductive Education Taranaki fills the health systems early intervention void; it is vital to ensure local kids are able to reach their full potential.

Keren Carlyle (New Plymouth, 2020-08-03)


Taranaki needs to have a centre that supports these families. It's not fair on the po agents to do constant fundraising while also dealing with their kids health issues and also ant other kids!

Jana Dunnet (New Plymouth, 2020-08-03)


My 4 year old son has attended Conductive Education Taranaki since it opened in New Plymouth in 2017 and the growth he has made from attending these sessions weekly has been incredible. I am so thankful for the difference these wonderful people have made to my son life.

Nicky Paterson (New Plymouth, 2020-08-03)


I;m signing this petition because I have seen the efforts these families have gone to to fund this for their children and I have seen the benefits this education program has had on the children, the confidence they build, the successes they have

Jenny Murphy (Hawera, 2020-08-03)


The team at conductive are essential to the children they work with- a government agency should have stepped in well before now to assist financially!!

Maree Johnson (New plymouth, 2020-08-03)


Our vulnerable children should be supported and funded to have the best quality of life possible x

Lisa Betts (New Plymouth , 2020-08-03)


I am a kiwi Mum with a special needs Son plus a Nanny of a special needs Granddaughter...This support is imperative to all special needs children in all areas of the country...

Angela Laing (Alice Springs, 2020-08-03)


This service is life changing for these super hero kids and their families. There are so many hurdles in their daily lives there should be no barriers to them receiving the help and support they need. The service conductive provides should be a right for these kids and their families. They shouldn’t have to fight for this service as well!

Haylee cover (New Plymouth , 2020-08-03)
