Government of South Australia - Port Augusta, SA

Education, Childcare & Training
Source: uWorkin


Department for Education
Job reference: 417548
Location: 5700 - PORT AUGUSTA
Job status: Long Term Contract
Eligibility: SA Public Sector Employees only

Student Support Services works with schools and preschools to provide support to assist them in meeting the needs of all children. The role requires the incumbent to positively participate in the ongoing development and review of a service model that supports the provision of integrated and targeted services to sites to assist them in meeting the needs of children and young people with additional needs.

The trend of increasing learner complexity is well documented in the literature. Increasing numbers of children and young people are being identified with complex learning difficulties and disabilities often with co-existing conditions such as autism and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Increasing numbers of children are in schools who have difficulties arising from premature birth, have survived infancy due to advances in medical interventions, have rare neurological disorders and foetal alcohol syndrome. Behavioural issues are becoming increasingly more challenging and complex with a range of co-morbidity factors (including mental health) that require skills and expertise to identify underlying causes to better address the needs of children and young people.

The Special Educator is a member of a multidisciplinary team and works with children and young people with additional needs including learning difficulties, developmental delays, disability, giftedness and health issues, and their families, and preschool and school staff. The Special Educator is placed in a team but may be required to provide services elsewhere. This position includes a particular focus on supporting children and young people with autism. The Special Educator assists in the development of supportive planning and strategies to improve outcomes for children and young people.
