Specialised learning programs are located in mainstream primary and secondary schools and cater for the specific needs of students from Kindergarten to Year 12 with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The programs are for students at significant risk of disengagement, underachievement and/or who exhibit very complex and challenging behaviours.The programs target age-appropriate academic engagement and achievement.
Early Intensive Intervention Programs are based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis for small groups of kindergarten and pre-primary aged children who have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. The program aims to equip these students with the skills necessary for entry into a mainstream Year 1 class. The transition to Year 1 is supported by a shared placement in the Pre-Primary year.
