Students with a disability

Alpha State School is serviced by Barcaldine P - 12 State School Special Education services. The Head of Special Education Services (HOSES) visits Alpha State School several times per term.  We are also serviced by Advisory Visiting Teachers (AVTs), Occupational Therapists (OT) and Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) upon request.
 
 We have also engaged external agencies, like Autism Queensland when needed.
 
The Special Education Program (SEP) is an integral part of Alpha State School. The role of the special education program is to facilitate and support the regular curricula offerings of the school for students with disabilities.  The special education program (SEP) is an integral part of Alpha State School.

Low incidence disability areas cover:
  • intellectual impairment
  • autistic spectrum disorder
  • hearing impairment
  • visual impairment
  • speech-language impairment.
  • physical impairment
A range of support options are offered to meet the diverse needs of individual students. These options are discussed with parents at various times throughout the year. Students who access support from the special education program have met education Queensland criteria in one or more disability categories and participate in an education adjustment program (EAP). These students are individually case managed by SEP teachers and are supported inclusively within the school setting by teachers and teacher aides in accordance with their individual needs.
