|Meeting the education needs of students with disabilities, sensory and physical disabilites, and emotional and behaviour disorders is a requirement of the Disability Standards for Education (2005). This unit of study provides an in depth examination of legislation and policy, and the education practice that is required to assist teachers meet the requirements of this policy and legislation. Further, it will offer students an opportunity to refine their professional reading skills, and make direct links to classroom practice. Focus will be given to the cycle of teaching and learning and planning to meet individual needs of students.|
