One In Five
One In Five for 10 June 2012 ( 21′ 00″ )
This week on One in Five two generations get together to discuss their hopes and wishes for a fulfilling future for their disabled brother or sister or child. Lorna Sullivan facilitated a recent 2nd Generation workshop in Auckland. It brought together families from all around the country.
Parent to Parent aims to support and empower parents who have children with disabilities or an impairment. It puts parents in touch with other parents of children with the same condition, runs training sessions for parents, provides them with information relevant to their child, and organises camps for the siblings of children with a disability.
A weekend conference facilitated by Lorna Sullivan aims to bring two generations together to explore how they can create a future that’s good for the whole family.
