Spectrum Planned Breaks for After School

Term time 2.30pm – 6.30pm weekdays

The Spectrum Care After-School Support programme gives families some extra breathing space while their child enjoys fun and stimulating activities in a safe environment.

Staffed by trained teacher aides from the Auckland Special School network, the after school programme is currently available weekdays at Sommerville Special School in Auckland. Prior to starting the programme, Spectrum meets with families to assess and understand each child’s needs and goals. Contact Spectrum for more information and booking.


Carer Support days can be redeemed, or a ‘fee for service’ cost based on your child’s support needs.
