 About this course:

Parents (Grandparents or others) thinking about the best school choice for their child with a disability will find some useful ideas in this package.  People on this journey with their own children came together to share their experiences and helped to create this program, which covers topics and ideas including:
  1. How do I get the best from a regular school for my child?
  2. Tips for working in partnership and communicating with teachers
  3. How to stand up for your child in meetings and have your say in formal documented plans.



About this course:

This course was developed from the Positive Behaviour Support in Mainstream Services project, which looked at a range of initiatives to understand and develop supports for people with a disability who may experience behaviour that we find challenging at times.  Each module is an introduction to the key underlying principles of understanding behaviour which include:

  1. Understanding Regulation
  2. Relationships
  3. Communication
  4. Supporting Processing
  5. Health and Well-being
