Programs for Students with Disabilities Leader
All schools have the opportunity to be innovative to address the growing need for students to have disability inclusion and diversity needs met within our school. Our Care Team at WPPS is particularly unique and experienced, and we liaise closely with teaching staff, families, external Allied Health Professionals (AHP’s) and our DET Student Support Officers (SSSO’s) to identify students in need of reasonable support adjustments to access the learning curriculum at WPPS.
My role on our active Care Team at WPPS, as Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) Coordinator, brings together 30+ years of primary school teaching experience in many schools and teams at grade levels from prep to 6, as well as in specialist roles. My role involves accessing funding through DET PSD program for our neediest students to assist our school teaching team and families to best support eligible disability needs students to grow in confidence towards achieving their emotional, social and academic potential.
My role also extends into Hume Region as a DET PSD Nominee to assist other schools with funding needs.
