It’s purpose is to better understand SLD/dyslexia, and provide support for students with SLD (Specific Learning Difficulties)/dyslexia and those who have contact with these young people.
When Speld NZ restructured in 2011, Speld South Canterbury voted to become an autonomous body affiliated with LDANZ (Learning Disabilities Association of New Zealand). Several other areas of New Zealand made a similar decision. Being affiliated to LDANZ ensures that L4U provides a quality professional service, especially in the area of providing tuition for students.
