In Sandgate District State High School’s commitment to Inclusive Education, the Special Education Program (SEP) works collaboratively with Students, Parents, Special Educators, Teachers, Teacher Aides and other stakeholders to improve the educational outcomes for all students with disabilities. The SEP supports students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Intellectual Disability (ID), Speech-Language Impairment (SLI), Hearing Impairment (HI), Vision Impairment (VI) and Physical Impairment (PI).
In the facilitation of individualised support, each diagnosed student is allocated a Case Manager. Sandgate District State High School offers a wide range of support for students with disabilities. Alongside supporting students in mainstream classes with teacher aides, Sandgate District State High School also offers a Team-Teach class for English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities for Year 7,8 & 9. Team-Teach classes are taught by two teachers; Subject Teacher and Special Education Teacher. Both teachers plan units of work together, with each teacher equally responsible for the resources, instruction and support delivery across the unit
