Our Patron:

Mrs Linda Hurley

“I am honoured to be Patron of SPELD NSW, which has advocated for children and adults with Specific Learning Difficulties for over 46 years.

As a former Primary School Teacher, I believe that children with Specific Learning Difficulties deserve our wholehearted efforts to enable them to achieve to their fullest potential in the educational system.

SPELD NSW assists teachers working with students with Specific Learning Difficulties by providing the latest professional development workshops and seminars. It also supports parents with advice, information and resources.

I am delighted to support SPELD NSW in continuing its valuable work.”
