As students transition to the NDIS there are significant changes to therapy processes. Some students remain with Therapy ACT which will cease practice for schools at the end of 2016. Parents or guardians who have engaged therapists using their NDIS packages are asked to follow the following procedures if therapists are required to work during school time:
- Parents: Please read Managing Externally Funded Visitors
Email firstname.lastname@example.org providing details of therapists and proposed attendance times
- Therapists: Complete the required processes as displayed on the Policies page of the Education and Training Directorate’s website.
Maintain communication with class teacher about times especially changes.
We greatly value collaborative planning with therapists and families and will seek input at ILP meetings and other occasions.
It is important to note that provision of therapy during school times can be at the discretion of the Principal as significant numbers of therapists in the school at any one time can impact on the learning progress of others.
