CLARKE ROAD SPECIAL SCHOOL
Clarke Road School caters for students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, many who have additional disabilities. Its ‘In the Zone for Learning’ project has been implemented for the purpose of deeply understanding the complex needs of each student and maximising their ability to engage and learn. The program addresses the learning needs of students by understanding their sensory processing needs. It comprises six modules for teachers to understand and recognise brain functioning and the accurate processing of sensory information for individual students. The program provides a guide to address students’ needs, in order to achieve learning outcomes and to develop higher-order skills such as reading, writing, maths and reasoning skills.
