Why is ASIST necessary?

Vita climbingMany western countries provide public funding for ABA therapy, but New Zealand parents who wish to help their children must cover its substantial costs themselves. These costs usually run into tens of thousands of dollars during the childhood of just one young person with autism.

Only the generosity of individual and corporate donors can bring this successful therapy to the widest number of families. Your support will give hope to the thousands of New Zealand families affected by autism.


Any donation will help ASIST to make a significant and lasting difference, improving the quality of life for children with autism and their families.

Donations can be sent to ASIST, 86a Dyers Pass Road, Christchurch 8022.


ASIST would also be happy to hear from you if you would like to remember us in your will.
