Special Education and Intervention Programs
The learning needs of students vary. Learning plans are developed for students with special needs or learning difficulties. If students are verified by a DfE educational psychologist or speech pathologist a Negotiated Education Plan is developed. The NEP is based on the individual needs of the learner and the Australian Curriculum. Learning plans are also developed for students with learning disabilities or difficulties. Goal setting, adjustments and progress is monitored to promote positive outcomes.
There are several intervention programs that are implemented at Hewett PS. These include MiniLit and MaqLit, evidence based small group reading intervention programs developed by Macquarie University. Quicksmart is an intervention program in numeracy for primary students.
