Dore New Zealand goes into liquidation

Last year, the Dore – which claimed to be able to treat dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties – went into administration in the UK and Australia. Dore UK failed to refund all the money that families had spent on what was promoted – without a good evidence-base – as a miracle cure. Now, Dore New Zealand has gone into liquidation.

Those who are owed money/services by Dore New Zealand should seek advice ASAP. More details on brainduck’s and gimpy’s blogs. A Liquadator’s 1st Report is on New Zealand Companies’ House. We hope that Dore will soon put up an announcement on its own website (the Liquidators’ Report is dated 23 March 2009): explaining what happened, and what people it owes money to and is providing services to ought to do next.

    You need to search for Dore on the NZ companies office site, doesn’t allow direct links.

      It would be a real shame if this is simply yet another way of organising the business to neglect responsibility for debt to then ‘do a phoenix’ and relaunch as Dore has done in UK.

      The new website shows that the programme has re-launched at basically double the price of the old programme.

      The price now being just over £2k for a programme which lasts 6-18 months with apts every 3 months. Appointments used to be every 6-8 weeks for about £2k for about the same length of time.

      I’m not doubting the success of the content of the programme but a better method of delivery must be established to enable a cost effective model which enables access to ALL who need it.

      There must be many ex-Dore employees out there who understand the methodology and techniques well enough to train educational professionals. I understand that the balance machine etc is needed but I do wonder how the technology included in products such as the ‘nintendo wii’ may be able to bridge this gap too….

  2. Thanks Duck – yes. Would have been handy if the site did allow direct links, but sadly not.
