Learning and student support

The Learning and Student Support (LASS) department is comprised of Special Education Programs (SEP) for students with verified disabilities. The LASS teachers and teacher aides at BrisbaneSDE operate across all sub schools: Prep - Year 6, Years 7 - 9 and Senior Secondary.
At BrisbaneSDE, both special education teachers and mainstream teachers deliver programs to students with verified disabilities (Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disability, Speech and Language Impairment, Vision Impairment, Physical Impairment, Hearing Impairment).
Some students may require an alternate or adjusted program.  An adjusted program is the same as the mainstream program but with adjustments that allow more equitable access to the mainstream curriculum. An alternative program is different from the classroom program and is delivered to students to allow for more opportunities of success and takes into consideration individual learning needs.
