My family and I hope to relocate to Auckland in Protected content Montreal, Canada.
My seven-year-old son was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism back in Protected content . All families of children diagnosed with ASD here get $500/month; no matter what the severity, no matter what the family income.
My ten-year-old has ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and SID (Sensory Integration Dysfunction) but we get nothing financially for that.
My questions are:
Will my ASD son's diagnosis be recognized in NZ? Will we receive financial compensation? What services are available for ASD and ADD/SID kids in NZ?
Children here in Montreal are extremely kind and taught from a very young age about autism and tolerance. In general, is there acceptance of these special kids in NZ?
