It may come as a surprise, that the specialist education needed for children with Down Syndrome to gain independence in society, is not currently provided in New Zealand as part of the government’s education curriculum. It is only available through private practitioners.

What is the ‘Gift of Speech’?

An essential area in the education of children with Down Syndrome is speech therapy. It’s so vitally important as it enables them to integrate  better into the community and enrich their lives. You can contribute to a child’s therapy sessions for three years at either $800 per year of $1600 per year.
All funds raised from ‘Gift of Speech’ will go directly to paying for speech therapy sessions.


Personal or Corporate

The Trust has been approached over time by both individuals and businesses who have expressed a desire to give a gift of speech to children in the Trust. We are very grateful for such generosity and wish to make these contributions as simple and streamlined as possible. We have therefore developed individual and corporate options for those wishing to support the Trust through the Gift of Speech programme. We have found that these options provide appropriate alternatives for most people. If you would like to discuss any other alternatives we are very happy to discuss these with you.
