Dyslexia Foundation of New Zealand

Dyslexia Foundation of New Zealand

Our mission is to increase the awareness, recognition, understanding and acceptance of dyslexia as an alternative way of thinking.

Nationwide

DFNZ is focused on action-oriented activities to champion change for dyslexic individuals, and on providing information, tools and resources to inspire others to do the same.

DFNZ has a twin focus on education and youth justice, based on getting it right for dyslexic individuals in the classroom and the courts. In the classroom, this is about improving the dyslexic student’s experience and achievements by ensuring that legal rights to inclusive learning and accommodations are delivered on. In the courts, this is about ensuring dyslexic youth are not entrapped in a system that treats them unfairly as adults. For a young person with learning differences that render them ill-equipped to understand and deal with the justice system, DFNZ contends the default should be a family inclusive, restorative approach.
