ASID Event – Support Workers Talking – What Where How

ASID is delighted to host a forum that recognises the critical role of support workers in NZ in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. At this forum support workers will share stories, ideas, achievements and challenges. They will get a real sense of their own expertise, be able to learn from each other, and discover new resources.
