ABOUT US

Our annual Special Needs Children’s Party brings smiles, fun and prizes to children living with autism and special needs, who are often excluded from the community activities all children need to thrive.

The fun and memorable day which, depending on location, is a Pool, Ten Pin Bowling or Movie Party, also provides an important building block for social development and inclusion.

This year, Autism New Zealand are again proud to be working with the Special Needs Children’s Party, to get impacted families along to this free event.

Additional funds raised will help the organisation act as a voice and advocate for dealing with government, and provide the much-needed training, education and resources to improve lives.
