In 2010 the New Zealand Council for Educational Research did research to find out. 
Their evaluation shows SPELD NZ teachers:
  • BUILD good relationships - they understand and respect students
  • CAPTURE students' interest and motivation by using a strength-based approach
  • BOOST students' self-esteem and confidence
  • ENGAGE students with learning

    To read more about the research findings, click here.
    Do keep in mind that since the report was written, there have been great strides in professional interaction between schools and SPELD NZ teachers.
