Vanessa Maher - SPELD NSW

Supporting children and adults with specific learning difficulties

SPELD NSW Team

Vanessa Maher

Information & Referral Officer, SPELD NSW Tutor

Vanessa has a Diploma in Education and a daughter with disabilities. As a parent advocate for children with disabilities and a teacher she is dedicated to supporting students and adults with learning difficulties.

“Throughout my years I have witnessed many progressive changes in the services that SPELD NSW provide and knowledge that we share with parents and professionals. Unfortunately, the number of students and adults presenting with learning difficulties has not lessened. I am a passionate advocate for parents and students and believe that we do make a difference.”

After a long break from teaching to care for her daughter and growing family, Vanessa wanted to improve her knowledge to support children with literacy and numeracy acquisition. Her first connection with SPELD NSW was in 2011 to attend the Teachers Certificate Course. An opportunity to join the team as an Information and Referral Officer followed.
