Special Education Program at Nanango SHS

The Special Education Program at Nanango SHS works with students who have a verified diagnosis in one or more of the following categories

·         Autistic Spectrum Disorder

·         Intellectual Disability

·         Speech and Language Impairment

·         Physical Impairment

·         Hearing Impairment

·         Vision Impairment

Students will access the curriculum depending on the support level required.  Some students are placed in mainstream classes, while others with more specific needs do core subjects as part of the Special Education Program.  Students in Year 7 – 10 unable to access curriculum at the same year level cohort, work at a different year level on an Individual Curriculum Plan (ICP).  Adjustments are made when teaching students with disabilities in the areas of Curriculum, Communication, Social Participation/Emotional Well Being, Health and Personal Care, Safety and Learning Environment/Access.

The individual needs of each student are considered when providing options to assist with their transition to work.  Our school collaborates with Disability Employment Agencies and Youth Services who have offered programs to our students to assist with the transition of life after school.  Local businesses assist with a work experience program for senior students.
