Early Intervention Trust Coordinator (Victoria Crone's story)

bio - victoria crone© ChildForum


Victoria Crone has been the Trustee of the Early Intervention Association of Aotearoa/NZ and Service Co-ordinator of the Wellington Early Intervention Trust, a centre based therapy and teaching programme for young children with special needs and disabilities. The centre is commonly known as WEIT.


What was your early life like? 

My father died when I was 10 years old and my mother was left a young widow to raise three children. She did a great job of single parenting but we were also most fortunate to live in a very supportive community where friends and neighbours provided love, support and guidance that continued over many years. It has left me with a lasting sense of the importance of family, work and personal relationships.

I have always been very keen on sport and I still love playing with great friends in a healthy, competitive environment. I know this passion has been a factor in the career decisions I have made.
