SPE3003 Teaching Students with High Support Needs

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts
School or Department : School of Linguistics, Adult and Specialist Educ


While representing a relatively small percentage of the school age population, students with low incidence disabilities present a major challenge to teachers. Such children often require individualised, specialised pedagogical skills. Teachers need to acquire a good understanding of these student's needs and the professional expertise to work effectively with them. They must also understand that, for these children, transitions into schools, between schools and from school are significant stages in their education development. These transitions rely on a commitment from teachers to working in a systematic and collaborative manner with families, agencies, employers and schools to ensure high quality programmes delivering appropriate outcomes.
NOTE: Minimum enrolment numbers apply to this offering. Should enrolments not reach the minimum number required for on-campus study, students may be transferred to the ONLINE offering and advised of this change before semester commences.
