Supporting Students

Inclusive teaching practices are a proactive way of meeting the needs of a diverse student population. Inclusive practice is a combination of a positive attitude to diversity as well as a preparedness to take practical steps toward inclusion. Practical steps include such things as the use of microphones, facing the class when speaking, providing comprehensive written notes in an accessible format and a variety of assessment tasks. Class processes such as group work, field trips, practicals and assessment tasks should also be conducted with disability access in mind.

At times, individual adjustments will be required to provide equitable access for a student with disabilities.
