The role of AUSPELD is to represent and support the many thousands of children and adults struggling with learning difficulties and disabilities around Australia.

Auspeld’s goals are:

  • To promote an awareness and understanding of the problems and needs of children and adults with specific learning difficulties and disabilities, thereby assisting them to obtain specialised identification and intervention as early as possible; and,
  • To promote best-practice teaching, evidence-based intervention, and support for research within the areas of literacy and numeracy development.
