SUMMARY OF STUDENT PROFILE

What is the nature and extent of your student’s condition, and their general health and well-being?

Further assessments: Should your student be referred to a paediatrician or other medical and/or allied health professionals for assessment to obtain further information about the nature and extent of your student’s condition, and their general health and well-being. This would be at the family’s cost.

Consider how your student’s condition may affect their involvement and ability to learn and participate in the educational program and age-appropriate activities at the school to their potential, and access and use the facilities and services of the school to their potential. The elements to be considered will vary depending upon the nature of the disability. For example, for a student with disability, consideration may be given to the following issues:

  • Intellectual functioning / Academic / curriculum / learning environment
  • Communication
  • Social participation and emotional wellbeing
  • Physical
  • Personal care

Consider (in addition to the IEP and a modified behaviour management plan):

  • School specific considerations, year level specific considerations, geographic specific considerations
  • Access and use of facilities and services
