Hamilton North Special School

Hamilton North Special School received $2,892.25 to go towards an adaptive trike for an autistic student.

14-year-old, student Carnation Tairakena, has Autism Spectrum Disorder, resulting in the need for 24/7 care and support around the clock.

The adaptive trike will help Carnation gain some independence and increase her physical activity which is linked to improved language skills, sensory modulation and improved mental health.
