New Zealand Williams Syndrome Association

New Zealand Williams Syndrome Association NZWSA is a registered charity and a voluntary non-profit organization run by parents. The New Zealand Williams Syndrome Association offers help and support for families with a child or adult diagnosed with Williams Syndrome. We can put people in touch with other families similarly affected.We hold picnics and get togethers, sometimes with a speaker. Every two years we have a 3 day camp for the whole family. NZWSA has a small library of booklets, papers and videos on subjects relevant to WS. These are helpful for parents and teachers. Three newsletters a year are sent to members.

We also receive newsletters and magazines from other WS Associations around the world. These keep us up to date with current research and new advances in the understanding of the syndrome. Our aims are to empower those with Williams Syndrome to reach their full potential and to increase awareness of WS among the medical and teaching professions and the general public. NZWSA is a registered charity. It is a voluntary non-profit organization run by parents.
