Students with a disability

 
KPSS Special Education Program
Kimberley Park State School’s Special Education Program works from a philosophy of acceptance and effective inclusion for students with disabilities, including those with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Speech Language Impairments, Intellectual Impairments, and Hearing/Vision/Physical Impairments. Our program operates through a continuum of support services reflecting the individual needs and diversity of students, within the areas of curriculum, communication, social participation, emotional wellbeing, accessing the learning environment, and health and safety. Collaboration is a central feature of our program with specialist staff, classroom teachers, parents/carers and family members working together, ensuring a team approach. We believe that communication, cooperation and collaboration are essential to ensure all students achieve to their potential academically, socially and physically.
Our goal is to deliver high quality education programs for all students. Students with similar needs are ‘clustered’ within our multi-age classrooms ensuring they identify with and are supported within regular classrooms. This also enables maximisation of specialist support. Special Education and classroom teachers develop cooperative, professional partnerships to ensure quality education programs for all students within their class. Special Education teachers and teacher aides generally work within the classroom to provide individual students’ specific programs and adjustments required to meet their ever-changing needs and aspirations.
Success for every child, ready for the future!
