Welcome to Learning MATTERS
Because learning differences exist.
Our belief is that all dyslexic children in New Zealand have the right to receive and benefit from evidence-based literacy education.
Our practices are founded on and align with the Orton Gillingham approach.
Learning Matters provides specialist learning support for students and families who wish to invest in extra literacy and or mathematics instruction. We specialise in support for students aged 4 years to adult.
We also consult with schools and education centres. Our work grows understanding about how children learn best and supports schools to put in place a consistent, evidence-based pedagogy rather than intervention programmes in isolation.
We want to change the status quo of evidence-based literacy and mathematics instruction across the country. We believe in the importance of aligning support outside the classroom with teaching in the classroom. Building teacher knowledge and practice on the classroom floor is necessary. This is where schools make the biggest difference to a child’s learning potential.
Early intervention is crucial. We cannot wait until a student is in Year 2, 3, 4, let alone Year 10 to determine they are experiencing difficulties.
