Welcome to the LDANZ website

The Learning Disabilities Association of New Zealand (incorporated) is:

  • An industry wide not-for-profit incorporated society.

Our Mission Statement

To empower people with SLD to unlock their potential.

We do this by:

  • Providing training, accreditation and continuing professional development for LD teachers and assessors.
  • Providing links to our affiliated local SLD organisations and to our registered LD teachers and assessors so that you can access an accredited provider in your area.
