Special Education

The Special Needs Department has oversight of the implementation of programs for students from Gumnuts to Year 12, who have been identified as requiring additional personal or academic support.

Special Needs staff work closely with classroom teachers to ensure that identified students are fully and realistically integrated in the regular classroom, at the same time as making provision for the withdrawal of such students for specialist teaching, as required.

The Special Needs Department pursues and enjoys a close working relationship with the parents of identified students. Meetings are organised between a student’s parents and teachers and there is ongoing management of the close link between home and school to ensure good communication and planning.

Where applicable, special parent groups are convened for either information sharing or for mutual support. A highlight in this regard is the parent group “CAPS” (Carinya Autism Parent Support). We meet once a term for mutual encouragement, discussion and information dissemination.
