The complex learning needs of our students usually require the combined expertise and knowledge of different professionals. Research indicates that a transdisciplinary team approach reflects ‘best practice’ for successful learning outcomes.
The transdisciplinary approach is a framework which enables members of an educational team - teacher, specialists, support staff, students and families - to contribute their knowledge and skills to collaborate with other members, and collectively prioritise and deliver the learning programmes that would most benefit a student.
At Sir Keith Park School, specialist input is classroom based and co-ordinated with class programmes. Programmes for learning are supported / developed / monitored / delivered / assessed through a transdisciplinary approach to ensure optimal learning takes place.
Parents, teachers, and therapists working together are crucial components in ensuring our students’ learning success.
