Welcome to the Christchurch Special Needs Library
We are a lending resource, that hires educational and therapeutic resources to enrich learning experiences and promote development of those with special needs in our community.
Needs may be intellectual, physical, sensory, emotional, behavioural or social.
Over 3,500 resources are arranged according to the particular skills that they are designed to develop. For example Language development, numeracy, fine and gross motor skills.
We welcome children and adults with special needs or anyone supporting them to join the Special Needs Library. We welcome general families also and schools wishing to use our resources.
Another area where we provide a service to the community is that of a resource centre for tertiary students studying the field of special needs – speech therapy, physio and occupational therapy, special education, kindergarten teaching and nursing.
