About Us

The national RTLB service works together with teachers and schools to find solutions that support students in Years 1-10 who have learning and/or behaviour difficulties. These solutions may go beyond the individual student and also benefit the teacher, whole class, groups of students and/or the whole school. RTLB have a particular focus on supporting Māori students, Pasifika students and children and young people moving into State care.
