At Kedron State School, we have a Special Education Program (SEP) designed to support students with diagnosed disabilities that meet the Department of Education and Training’s Education Adjustment Program criteria – that is, they have a diagnosed disability and require significant adjustments in place in the school setting.
Students are supported by special education teachers and teacher aides on a daily basis as well as visiting specialists as required, including a Departmental occupational therapist, physiotherapist, guidance officer and speech-language pathologist. Advisory visiting teachers, who have specialist knowledge and experience in Vision Impairment, Hearing Impairment and Physical Impairments may also support the students with disabilities.
Students diagnosed with disabilities at Kedron State School spend the majority of each day in mainstream classrooms where they benefit, not only academically, but socially as well. However, all students with disabilities are provided with individualized programs to meet their specific needs. These programs may include academic support with an emphasis on developing literacy and numeracy skills, life skills, gross motor and fine motor skills, social skills, and/or communication skills.
If you have concerns about your child’s development, in the first instance contact their class teacher for more information.
