About Us


The Neurodiversity in Education Coalition comprises four national organisations.

The Neurodiversity in Education Coalition comprises four national organisations whose constituents make up a large proportion of neurodiverse young people in NZ:

ADHD New Zealand
Autism nz. Every step together
Dyslexia Foundation of New Zealand
New Zealand Centre for gifted Education. Empowering extraordinary Minds

Our organisations have been operating for decades to support young people, their whānau and their teachers. We understand the needs of neurodiverse young people, and we know what works.

We believe that NZ's education system should ensure that every neurodiverse learner has what they need to succeed, whatever their particular diagnosis or the level of support they require. 


We are committed to working together and in an active partnership with Government, making sure that all neurodiversity organisations in New Zealand have a voice, a seat at the table,  and the financial support they need to do their work.
