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.
We are very interested in hearing about the experiences of parents, caregivers and teachers of children with learning difficulties, as well as students who have learning difficulties, to help us respond to the Disability Standard for Education Review.
Due to the impact of COVID19 in our community, face to face professional development workshops in April, May and June have been postponed. New dates to be announced soon.
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.
