Welcome to SPELADD New Zealand Inc.


SPELADD is a not-for-profit organisation and registered Charity, established in 1999. We provide support and services for people with learning differences such as dyslexia, other specific learning difficulties (SLD) and attention deficit hyper-activity disorder (ADHD).  We also provide help for the parents/families, educators, employers and the wider community of people with SLDs.

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 agencies to share 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 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

Our office is in the Grand Building opposite All Saints' Church, Church Street, Palmerston North .
