How do I support full participation of students with a disability in my classroom?

The President of the Queensland Association of Special Education Leaders, Roselynne Anderson, has spoken to the QCT about the crucial nature of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) Standard 1.6 – Strategies to support full participation of students with disabilities.

Roselynne also provides advice, in the video on support and strategies that teachers, including Highly Accomplished and Lead teachers, can use to ensure Standard 1.6 is met.
