  • Going through issues with my son and getting him help. He meets all criteria, but because his dad and I have 50/50 shared care we aren’t receiving help.

  • My daughter and i battled for years to gt a fair go in Kura throughout NZ, FAILED. ALL because noone would diagnose her as Dyslexic……A bright beautiful happy healthy child. They learn in a completely different way than mainstream…..She was a visual learner with talents in many genres. By the time the Head of Starship hospital diagnosed her…texting had become the norm which is how Dyzlexic people often spell….as it sounds! Get over yourselves……All children deserve the Right to be Taught.

  • Yes, and ALL people working in a paid capacity with these students should be trained appropriately.

  • I have a dyslexic child and there is no support in school for his learning. Year 7 will be interesting because I don’t believe more lip service from a new school will have any substance either. There is however plenty of support for the children with behavioural issues because they are in your face and need dealing with. Our learning disabled kids are falling through the cracks and teachers aren’t even identifying those with issues the issues, let alone supporting their different ways of learning! Teachers need to get back to hands on teaching and caring more about the kids than the protocols and systems!

Children shouldn't be locked away in solitary confinement seclusion rooms because schools don't have the funding or training to properly support students. Kids with learning needs deserve proper support and funding. Our current schooling system is not providing this. The Government can fund education to ensure our children get the support they need.
