Learning Support and Autism Program

Learning Support

Learning support has a key role in promoting access to learning for all students. This includes providing additional support for students with disability and diverse needs. This support is school-wide. Our teachers and teacher assistants work to provide students with a range of educational adjustments in mainstream classes and from our Learning Centre. For some students this may include additional adult assistance and a Learning Plan to communicate priority learning goals and personalised supports and teaching strategies. We collaborate with students, families and teaching teams to refine support provisions ongoing.

Autism Specific Program

Our school hosts an Autism Specific Program for students with high functioning autism. Operating from our Learning Centre the Program actively supports students’ communication with teachers and peers, daily organisation, self-regulation, and forms a hub for recreation and socialising.
