Practical teaching resource to increase support for students with disability

Australian Special Education Principals Association have developed Leading Learning 4 All, a website with resources available to teachers and principals to better support their students with special needs.

The suite of resources provides teachers with practical advice on effective leadership strategies useful in schools.

“For example, Leading Learning 4 All helps raise awareness of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005 through online visual examples and snapshots from principals and teachers," said Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham.

“Encouraging inclusive learning practices will benefit all Australian students by enhancing the diversity of teaching techniques.”

The interactive website was developed by the Australian Special Education Principals Association, in collaboration with school leaders across Australia and informed by educational expertise both nationally and internationally.

“All materials have been trialled by school leaders and teachers across Australia and the resource can be adjusted and refined as teaching practices and understandings develop,” Birmingham said.

“From a diagnostic tool to help schools provide an accurate picture of their potential areas for development, working through to personal development strategies for teachers and collaborative learning ideas for students with different types of need, this is a practical tool for schools."
