welfare of children and adults with specific learning difficulties
Between 1 and 3 students in every classroom in New South Wales may experience difficulties with learning. We can help.
We are parents, teachers, tutors and professionals with a shared commitment to
early identification, effective intervention and support for children and adults with specific learning difficulties, like dyslexia.
If your child struggles at school or at home with reading, writing, spelling and maths and you’re looking for support get in touch. Not all children will have a specific learning difficulty but it’s important to seek support early.
If you're looking for support start here or contact the SPELD Infoline today.
Our friendly and experienced Information and Referral Officers are available to listen to your concerns and provide you with information, support and resources.
SPELD NSW welcomes the announcement that the Phonics Screening Check will be compulsory in NSW public schools from next year.
Due to the impact of COVID19 in our community, SPELD NSW is offering online professional learning.
SPELD NSW provides professional learning for teachers, tutors, speech pathologists and psychologists. Our workshops focus on evidence-based literacy and numeracy instruction and best-practice approaches to teach and support students with specific learning difficulties like dyslexia.
