Primary Special Education Program

The programs provided for children with a disability who attend Dalby South State School are based on each child's individual needs. Specific educational goals for each child are developed by the SEP teacher in close collaboration with the class teacher, parents, therapists, specialist support personnel, and where appropriate, the child.
The delivery of the program will depend upon the child's level of need for support and the nature of their disability. Programs offered may include: 
·         small group work in the SEP to provide assistance in literacy, numeracy or other curriculum areas;
·         in-class support for children provided by special education teacher and/or special education teacher aide;
·         social skills and life skills programs;
·         support and supervision in the playground;
·         specific motor and sensory programs;
·         curriculum planning support for classroom teachers. 
  
The emphasis of the SEP is on inclusion into the mainstream at a level appropriate to the child's needs.
Staff include both special education teachers and teacher aides. The SEP staff work closely with other support personnel including Guidance Officers, Therapists and Advisory Visiting Teachers to provide a rich, stimulating and appropriate education for children attending the program. All enquiries about our SEP should be directed to our Deputy Principals either via our school office or by email on deputyprincipal@dalbsoutss.eq.edu.au
