Integration-Disabilities and Impairments Program

It is the policy of this school to actively promote acceptance of individual differences, rights and potential under the principles of equal opportunity. The Integration program operates under the guidelines of the Department of Education and Early Child for Students with Disabilities and Impairments. The program emphasises the importance of inclusion across all aspects of the curriculum and individual student success within the classroom. It recognises that security, independence and self-esteem are of paramount importance in ensuring successful student outcomes.

 

Specific student goals are set and evaluated by each student’s program support group (PSG), which includes the student, parent or carer, advocate (if requested), the Integration teacher and aide. This group meets once per Semester or more often if required.

 

Students benefit from the expertise, care and flexibility of the Integration staff.  Assistance includes classroom support across all curriculum areas, modification of work requirements where appropriate, additional computer access, assistance with daily routines, overnight camp support, para-medical assistance, medication, health and hygiene needs.

 

Integration students usually attend Portland Secondary College on a full-time basis; however they may prefer to share dual enrolment arrangements with the nearby Portland Specialist School.  Both schools work in close cooperation and find dual enrolments to be particularly rewarding for the students, parents and teachers involved.
