Students with a disability
Calliope State School has adopted an
inclusive model meeting the needs of students with a disability. The
Special Education Program (SEP) is founded by provision of quality support by
Special Education teachers. A holistic approach adopted by the SEP unit filters
from student support within the classroom, small group support and program to
individual programs, support and intervention.
Each students’ learning
environment is flexible to support, encourage and enable students to achieve
every day and maximize their independence.
The Special Education Program supports each student to
access the curriculum at a standard appropriate to their needs and goals.
The Head of Special Education Services manages the SEP. Special Education
Teachers provide teaching, in-class support and case management for students
with disabilities. Special Education Teacher Aides provide support for
these students both in and out of the classroom.
programs are provided by the SEP, or through engagement with external
providers, which include:
Therapy services, fine and gross motor program
(parents, teachers, SEP team and specialists) meet regularly and are available
for meetings with families as required.
Individual Education Plans (IEP) and Individual Curriculum Plans are
provided to support successful inclusive classroom teaching and student
students are identified and continually monitored to ensure early intervention
and on-going support is provided.
