Synopsis

In this course students will explore inclusive education philosophies, policies and practices as a contemporary response to maximising learning outcomes for students with special needs and disabilities. Additionally students will develop knowledge of the characteristics and educational approaches for a range of special needs and disabilities: intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, emotional or behavioural disorders, autistic spectrum disorder, communication disorders, sensory impairments, physical disabilities, health impairments, and ADHD. There is also consideration of the exceptional needs of students who are gifted and talented. A key emphasis throughout the course is the considerable diversity that exists within each of the specials needs and disabilities categories, thus necessitating individualised approaches to the evaluation and support of students with special needs.
