Literacy, Numeracy & Special Learning Needs (Students with Disabilities)
St. Peter Julian Eymard provides student support services aimed at assisting students with additional or specific learning needs.
The objective of the Literacy, Numeracy & Special Learning Needs (LNSLN) Programme, is to improve the learning outcomes of students who may be disadvantaged, particularly in literacy and numeracy.
To be deemed eligible for funded integration support under LNSLN, students need to have been assessed by a relevant specialist as having an intellectual disability, a social/emotional disorder, a severe language disorder, chronic health or a physical disability. The school will then submit an application requesting integration support for those students based on specific criteria.
- Each child is assigned a Student Support Officer whose role is to support the student in the classroom, and to work with the class teacher to meet their specific learning outcomes.
- Teachers & Student Support Officers (Teacher Aides), devise and implement individual learning plans (ILP) for students within the school setting.
- Program Support Group meetings are held three times over the year to determine how well goals are being met.
- Consultancy services are provided to students, teachers and parents via the Catholic Education Office, and support is offered via various streams such as Speech Pathology, School Advisors or Psychologists.
