SPELD NZ at Parliament

 In Uncategorized

SPELD NZ has joined the call for a government inquiry into support for dyslexia and other neurodiversity. Our submission outlines:

• How New Zealand is failing to meet the needs of a huge number of vulnerable learners

• The dramatic social and economic fallout because of our minimal response

• What needs to happen, including legislation to protect the rights of those with dyslexia/neurodiversity and ensure best practice education.

You can read our submission in full here.
You can watch Mike Styles, SPELD NZ and dyslexic Emeritus Professor David Mellor present their submissions to a parliamentary select committee here.
