What we offer
IDEA Services provides three fully funded Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Programmes for families/whanau and caregivers of children and young people with autism. Our programmes are run by Community Specialist Services – a national team of highly qualified staff who have experience working with children with autism and their families.
These programmes are available throughout New Zealand free of charge as they are fully funded by the Ministries of Health and /or Education. They are for families who will benefit from increasing their knowledge and skill base and who may require specialist intervention for their child/young person with autism.
