Learning support

Malanda State School provides a network of programs and support to students identified with learning difficulties and learning disabilities. These programs are coordinated by our Support Teacher and supported by learning support teachers, teacher aides and volunteers.

The Support Teacher's responsibilities include:

  • Assisting teachers with modifications to the curriculum.
  • Liaise with various parties involved to gather data.
  • Develops and implements and assists with monitoring the support plan in collaboration with the class teacher/s (goals, modifications to strategies, assessment techniques, resources, management).
  • Referring a student for review of the program type if required.
  • Referring students to other specialist teachers or outside agencies.
  • Attending case conferences with various parties involved.
  • Liaising with high schools for transition of students.
  • Write detailed reports for outside agencies.
  • Purchasing resources to meet children's needs and professional development of teachers.

Parents should discuss any concerns with the class teacher, administration or the support teacher if they feel their child is in need of specialist support.
