Learning Plus

A boost in self-confidence

Joanna and the team at Learning Plus enjoy helping students with processing and visual difficulties to increase their confidence and self-esteem. In collaboration with a number of optometrists trained to do the specialist Cellfield testing.

The clinicians at our centre are fully qualified, enthusiastic and positive. We draw from a wealth of experience and specialist programmes to encourage and support your child in reaching their full learning potential.

Assessments & Programmes

Learning Plus helps with Dyslexia and reading and processing difficulties, using Irlen screening , the Cellfield Reading Intervention and specialist tuition.

We also test students applying for Special Assessment Conditions for NCEA/Cambridge and higher qualifications. These tests are completed by Joanna, who is a NZCER Level C Assessor, using percentile rank scores obtained from psychometric testing.


You will find our positive and supportive learning environment at 113 Harbourside Drive, Karaka, Papakura.
