Unit 1A is home to the Student Support Hub coordinated by Danielle Hoogland. It is located at the top of the school near Year 1. Our Student Support Unit has a fully integrated Autism Unit, in addition to intervention programs which occur throughout each day. Students who are members of our LSUA, are fully integrated into mainstream classes with support. This allows us the flexibility to assist students across the school, using a range of strategies including smaller focus groups in a variety of areas such as Literacy and Numeracy. The students in the LSUA have the opportunities to engage in targeted social skills lessons as well as lessons and activities focusing on life skills including community access. Once a week the students who are part of our Student Support model participate in the Pegasus program.
The Student Support Unit coordinates the celebration of 'Bubbles Day' across the school during term one, on Autism Awareness Day. This gives all the students, staff and wider community the opportunity to learn and celebrate difference, as well as understand the features of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
