Our Transdisciplinary Teaming Model
Our transdisciplinary model was developed following the review of current research and literature into what makes learning most effective for students with disabilities. Our staff worked together to develop a model that emphasises therapists and educators working collaboratively to support the individualised learning needs of each child. This approach sees therapists working in classrooms, delivering programs together with teachers and ensures a holistic blend of educational and therapeutic approaches and best practice.
Our transdisciplinary teams work collaboratively with families to identify learning priorities, set goals and develop individualised learning plans for every student.
The transdisciplinary teams at Nepean consist of teachers with special education qualifications, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, a registered nurse (RN1), a music therapist and social worker, who work together to design and implement engaging learning programs.
These active partnerships ensure every child has the very best opportunity to reach his or her potential. Our transdisciplinary teams walk beside the student and their family on their learning journey, celebrating each achievement and success.
