Welcome to SPELADD New Zealand Inc

SPELADD New Zealand Inc. is a registered not-for-profit organisation, established in 1999. We provide support and services for people of all ages with learning differences such as specific learning difficulties (SLD) and attention deficit hyper-activity disorder (ADHD) as well as their parents/families, educators, employers and the wider community.

Our Aim:

To enable those with specific learning difficulties (SLD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to reach their full potential. We operate in the lower central North Island from our base in Palmerston North.

Our Vision:

That every individual with SLD or ADHD has their learning needs recognised and met; and for educators and other professionals to share expert knowledge in a collaborative way for the good of all.

​Our Mission:

To enable and facilitate the recognition, remediation and referral of those who learn differently to encourage their success and enjoyment of life-long learning.

We achieve this through:

➽ In depth assessment of needs and strengths by two specially trained assessors.

➽ Targeted programmes of tutoring for students who need individual help.

➽ In depth training for tutors and other educators.

➽ Access to information via our seminars, website, newsletter and library.

We need donations to allow us to continue to provide these services to New Zealanders.

More about us

SPELADD looks at the whole person, from what they eat to how they move, feel, hear and see and how they cope with learning and developing their self-esteem and social skills. All these improved abilities for the child, and parents learning advocacy skills, means a happier family and a happier community.
