What does it all cost?


Membership Fees

As a charitable organisation, we ask all members to pay an annual membership fee, which helps to cover our operating expenses. Our membership fees (whether individual or for the entire family) are:

With community services card in name of parent /caregiver

  • $75 for first year
  • $75 each following year to renew

Without community services card

  • $120 for the first year
  • $120 each following year to renew

NB: All membership fees include GST.

Benefits of membership include a discounted rate for our SPELD NZ assessments and tuition, our magazine several times a year, free use of our library resources, discounted rates for our introductory courses and the ability to apply for financial support for those with proof of low income.

Please note we receive no government funding. We rely on memberships, donations and fundraising to maintain our services to the community.


Our members pay teachers and assessors directly for their services.  The assessment includes time, materials, the analysis of the result and the full report. Please check our current Information Pack to see their range in fees.  You are also welcome to call us to find out more specific information about the availability and costs for assessment and tuition in your region: 0800 773 536
