My daughter has ADHD and has been coping in a mainstream school in South Africa with small classes. I am struggling to find schools like this online in Wellington.

Can anyone recommend specific schools in Wellington that cater for kids that may need a bit of extra time and attention? She doesn't have any learning difficulties.

Thank you!

Hello Amanda. I suggest you have a quick chat with an educational psychologist in Wellington - they should be able to give you some independent advice. Do a Google search for "educational psychologist in wellington nz".

Here's a couple worth trying:

Hi Amanda,

Tom has given some excellent advice – I just thought I'd add another idea into the mix. Are you considering only public schools or open to looking into private schools as well? Some private schools have very small classes, particularly international schools. If only public schools are an option, it might be a good idea to send off emails to a handful of schools enquiring about class size.

Hope that helps, and best of luck with the move!
