Enrolment, cost, time & location...
For an enrolment we require a combined referral from whānau and the child's school. Both are asked to complete an online questionnaire describing the student's interests, strengths and traits in detail.
Additionally we invite your child to do a brief online screening with us. This test will establish if there is a likelihood of dyslexia present.
Please note that this is indeed just a screening tool and won't be able to give you a full dyslexia diagnosis for your child. For these services we recommend you contact an Educational Psychologist or SPELD assessor.
The cost of attending our Project D classes is $59 per day and will be invoiced termly. We can offer financial support through a limited number of scholarships.
There is a once off cost for the assessment of $85.
All prices are inclusive of GST.
There is no additional cost for your school if your kura is already affiliated with The Head Office. See a list of our contributing schools here.
We are incredibly grateful for the generous support of the TOI Foundation who made the development of Project D possible.
Location, days and times
Our Project D classes will be held at the Head Office premises on 155 Devon Street in New Plymouth.
We plan to run two Project D classes per week in 2023, one class for year 5 & 6 students and one class for year 7 & 8 students. These will be held on a Thursday and Friday respectively between 11am and 3pm.
After running a pilot programme for 6 months and gathering feedback from families and involved schools we decided on a half-day option for our classes so students can attend the important first sessions at their regular school. This will enable them to touch base with their teacher and capture literacy and numeracy sessions that are often held in the first part of the day.
