Supporting children and adults with specific learning difficulties

Advancing the education and
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. If you're looking for support contact the SPELD Infoline today.

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.
