What the day covers:
New Zealand Conductive Education, Parent to Parent and the Cerebral Palsy Society is offering free training to parents, stepparents or grandparents of people with cerebral palsy who want to help support other parents. Talking to someone who has been through similar experiences can be life-changing for families new to the world of disability.

The course covers communication skills, looks at grief issues and provides the opportunity for personal awareness where parents can consider their ability to support others in similar circumstances.

At the conclusion of the training, parents are able to become volunteer Support Parents however this is optional.

'Parent To Parent'-Parent to Parent links parents with a trained volunteer Support Parent who has a child or family member with the same or similar disability, health impairment, or who are experiencing a similar issue. They have been providing support to New Zealand Families for over 33 years.
