At the SCLD, the impact of an intervention is evaluated through regular monitoring of student progress. This is facilitated by the student’s teacher and modifications can be made to the intervention through consultation between the clinician, teacher and student.
The SCLD offers an advocacy service for students with significant learning difficulties to ensure that reasonable adjustments are made to how they are taught and how they demonstrate what they have learnt. This allows students with significant learning difficulties a realistic chance of succeeding at school.
The SCLD will also advocate for reasonable adjustments to be made to assessment conditions for students with significant learning difficulties (e.g., extra time; a ‘reader’). This may involve letters of support for students completing Years 11 and 12.
