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

  • $50 for first year
  • $50 each following year to renew

Without community services card

  • $100 for the first year
  • $100 each following year to renew
  • discounted to $85 for prompt

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.


A SPELD NZ assessment for members generally ranges from $490 to $650 (plus GST if any). This includes assessment time, materials, the analysis of the results and the full report.

SPELD NZ one-on-one tuition for members ranges from $35 to $90 (plus GST if any) per one hour lesson.
