Prioritise a team approach

Identifying what would be a good fit for a learner requires a team approach.

Establish a team with the knowledge and skills to support student learning and wellbeing, including:

  • the learner
  • family and whānau
  • class teacher
  • in-school learning support team
  • teacher aide
  • outside Learning Support services (for example, RTLB, SLT, OT, BLENNZ).

Reduce barriers to access

Reduce barriers to access

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that enables equitable access and participation in education.

Explore the UDL guide for more information.

Leaders have a framework that will:

  • support their growth and development as an inclusive school
  • support consistent, coherent inclusive teaching and learning practices across their school
  • guide the design of more inclusive systems and processes, community events, and building projects
  • provide a shared language that can be used with all stakeholders, across all contexts.
