Assistance for students with special needs

 

​At Boonah State High School, we focus on the inclusion education model which involves students learning with their peers in a supported safe environment in mainstream classes wherever possible.

Students who need extra support have access to the Flexible Learning Centre. Here specialist staff, adaptive technologies and alternate programs such as communication, life skills, and functional academic and personal/interpersonal skills is available. These programs are increasing students’ self-concept and self-esteem, which in turn assist them in participation to the best of their ability in mainstream classes with their peers.

Students in Years 8 & 9 may be offered study sessions that allows them to be supported while they are doing assignments and exams. This also gives them time to catch up on class work, homework or have extra tutorial sessions with specialist teachers.

Every student enters the Flexible Learning Centre with a unique range of experiences and skills. Our aim is to develop these skills and individualise the educational programs of students to best fit their future needs. Our vision is to provide our students with the skills and strategies to assist them in becoming life long learners.
