Inclusive Education Program
Brookfield State School Inclusive Education Program offers a range of support modes for students profiled under the Education Adjustment Program (EAP) process with Intellectual, Physical, Hearing, Visual and Speech Impairments, Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
Inclusion Teachers and Teacher Aides, support students with disabilities in the classroom and occasionally in the SEP room when a quiet space for individual work is required.
Inclusion Teachers consult with and assist class teachers in planning units and programs to meet the needs of all students, they also assist class teachers in modifying class resources to meet identified needs.
The Inclusion Teacher also develops partnerships with parents, classroom teachers, administrators and specialists in the provision of the individual educational needs of the student.
Support Teacher Literacy and Numeracy (STLaN)
Brookfield State School is supported by a Support Teacher Literacy and Numeracy.
Our STLaN teacher manages learning support for children identified with specific academic needs across literacy and numeracy areas.
Support can be in the form of classroom teacher guidance and support, direct assessment, explicit teaching, in-class material support, home programmes and parent training support.
Support is accessed via the Student Support Management procedures via Classroom Teacher recommendation that a child may need some form of support. Parents with concerns about a child's academic progress should first speak to the child's Classroom Teacher.
Progress of students requiring support is monitored by the STLaN teacher in conjunction with classroom teachers.
Processes for External Specialists
All specialist requests for information or access to students during school time should be referred to our Learning Support Teacher Anna Vella with sufficient time (see here for timeframes) to consult the relevant stakeholders and organise the requirements.
