Students with Diverse Needs: Transition into Middle School

PL # 11579.
Starting on 12 Oct 2018
Cancellation permitted until 08/10/2018

Event registrations closed on 9/10/2018


This session will look at one significant transition that occurs for our students at school. For any student it can be exciting yet challenging time as they prepare themselves for the next stage in their learning. This is the time when we have to consider our students with a disability, on how they manage the transition at particular points in their school career. This particular PL will be looking at transition from Year 6 to 7.

Effective transition processes and practices are based on a broad interpretation of the concept of transition. The key topics that will be discussed are:

* Person-centred approach and take into account the needs of the individual student and their family
* Planned well in advance of the transition
* Use collaborative processes that build relationships over time
* Identify the adjustments and supports required to ensure that students with disability can access and participate in transition processes and supports on the same basis as their year-level peers.
