The Learning Support team helps students with learning difficulties, especially in literacy and numeracy. Staff will work with students in class and on a class withdrawal basis in small groups.
Learning Support offers opportunities for students with assistance to organise, provide and administer for needs of individuals requiring additional support with learning.
The faculty also:
- Collects information on students with learning disabilities
- Provides and distributes specific resources for these students
- Develops and implements special initiatives in learning support.
Teachers are increasingly challenged by the diverse learning needs of students in their classrooms. The additional learning and support needs may relate to a range of circumstances for the student, their family and their schools. They may be short term or ongoing throughout schooling. They may relate to disability or difficulties in learning or behaviour from a variety of causes.
