Earlier this year I attended the AIS NSW Becoming a Highly Accomplished Teacher PL two day course, one of the segments focused on the Descriptors 1.6, 3.2 and 4.1 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
1.6 Strategies to support full participation of students with disability
3.2 Plan, structure and sequence learning programs (that engage all students)
4.1 Support student participation
Key documents were referred to as well as general information on how best to cater for students with disabilities. A summary of the session can be found in the Special Education Needs presentation that was shared with teaching staff at school.
Key documents included:
Legislative guidance: Australian Government Disability Standards for Education 2005
Practical ideas for planning and programming: NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum – Supporting Students with Special Needs Education
