This parent-initiated, voluntary support group was formed in June 1992.

Over the past 30 years we have evolved into an organisation that provides support and information to anyone affected by dyspraxia/DCD.

Dyspraxia Support Group of New Zealand

This parent-initiated, voluntary support group was started for all who care for children with Developmental Dyspraxia/DCD and was formed in June 1992. We are unique in Aotearoa/New Zealand in the help, support and information we provide.

Our membership includes families, caregivers, and professionals from both New Zealand and across the world.

We aim to help everyone with Developmental Dyspraxia/DCD to learn, to achieve their potential and ultimately to lead a happy, satisfying life by:

  • Supporting each other, sharing concerns and solutions with other parents, caregivers and professionals with similar challenges.

  • Informing ourselves and sharing information, thus increasing our own understanding of dyspraxia/DCD.

  • Building and using a store of resources and information.

  • Publishing a newsletter, ‘Connections’, once a term.

  • Increasing general awareness and understanding of dyspraxia/DCD

We have active groups on Facebook and run webinars and information seminars online.

In the Canterbury area we run groups for tamariki and rangatahi from age 5 to 18 years as well as a social group for adults.
