One In Five for 13 May 2012
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. Our second item is about Wendy Neilson, the immediate past president of the Disabled Person's Assembly. She also teaches a paper on Physical Activity and Disability for Waikato University's School of Education.
