Specific Learning Difficulties Association of NSW (SPELD NSW) exists to provide advice and services to children and adults with specific learning difficulties, and those who teach, work and care for them. Our aim is for all individuals in NSW with Specific Learning Difficulties to have every opportunity to achieve their full potential in life.

Becoming a Friend of SPELD NSW is an opportunity for you to help ensure that this aim is achieved – Friends’ donations play a significant part in enabling us to support and advise people with specific learning difficulties and their families, and helping us to equip teachers, tutors and other professionals to keep on the cutting edge of research in how to help those with specific learning difficulties most effectively. (See the activities outlined throughout our website). This is your chance to make a real difference!





There are two categories in our Friends of SPELD NSW list:

Friends – Individuals, families or businesses who make a donation to SPELD NSW of $80 (or more); and

Best Friends – Individuals, families or businesses who make a donation to SPELD NSW of $200 (or more)



Your donation counts!

Any amount donated over $2.00 is tax deductible (CFN 11013).

You can join our Friends list whether or not you are a Member of SPELD NSW, but only those who are Members are able to vote at our AGM or join the Management Committee (see benefits for membership).

Friends and Best Friends can choose to be acknowledged on our website.
