Over the coming months we will be updating this page regularly with links to literacy resources, PD, training, texts and publications which we hope will help those wishing to support children with learning difficulties. Our focus for the immediate future is lifting literacy rates for at-risk children with learning disabilities/differences in the Waikato.

Please note that we do not benefit financially from publishing these materials - the sole purpose of this page is to serve as a link to science/evidence-based literacy resources and publications for all those interested to support tamariki literacy in New Zealand. The views expressed in the resources may not reflect the views and opinions of the Trust. We recommend that people conduct their own research and make decisions based their opinions and needs. If you have evidence/science-based NZ literacy resources you would like to share please email
