This unit is designed for educators with an interest in special and/or inclusive education. The Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (MYCEETYA, 2008) and the Disability Standards for Education (2005) make it clear that students with disability should expect that Australian schooling will enable them to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens. In this context, you will be required to independently research and analyse the theoretical and practical issues associated with educating students with multiple disabilities and complex health conditions. Building on your work in EMT603 or ESH303 Inclusive Practices in Education Settings, you will develop an advanced and integrated understanding of learning and teaching approaches to support this diverse population of students, recognising the need to tailor programs to individual students strengths and learning needs through collaborative, multi-disciplinary approaches.
