SLD Nelson teachers are qualified and experienced to teach students with specific learning disabilities. They participate in regular professional development. There are two NZCER Registered Level C cognitive and educational assessors.
SLD Nelson was established in 1987 as an incorporated society under its former name SPELD Nelson. It is a not- for- profit organization registered with the Charities Commission, supported by grants, fundraising and donations.
SLD Nelson is a member of the Learning Disabilities Association of New Zealand (LDANZ Inc) established in 2011. If you are interested in teacher training with LDANZ please contact Tessa Whiteman firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a resource library of books and educational games available free of charge to members.
SLD Nelson Inc has teachers working in the Nelson, Tasman and Golden Bay areas.
Teachers work one-to-one with students at their schools, or at the homes of the teachers or at the student’s home – both during and outside school hours.
Lessons are tailored to the specific needs of the student and cost $50 an hour. There is some assistance with funding lessons in cases of hardship.
