At Cloncurry State School P–12 we encourage inclusive practice for students with disabilities and learning difficulties. We promote access to, participation in and quality educational outcomes for students with disabilities. Adjustments are made for students with disabilities to enable them to access the curriculum, achieve curriculum outcomes and participate in school life.
Specialised services for students with disabilities provide educational support arising from Autism Spectrum Disorder, Hearing Impairment, Intellectual Impairment, Physical Impairment, Speech-Language Impairment, Vision Impairment or a combination of these. Visiting professionals are available to support students with disabilities.
- guidance officers
- advising visiting teachers
- occupational therapists
- speech-language pathologists
Many of these professionals visit students at school to assess their educational needs and assist teachers in developing programs.
Special needs teacher
The special needs teacher works with students who have been verified or are in the data gathering stages of the verification process. All verified students have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) that the special needs teacher—along with visiting specialist and the classroom teacher—work together on, with support given by the teacher aides. Verified students are an inclusive member of the classroom and work to a modified program given by the classroom teacher.
