The education of students with special education needs is the business of all teachers. This unit will further the study of policy and practices that assist teachers to cater for students with special needs through (a) examining strategies of how teachers can work together to address student need, and (b) how they can adjust their classroom practices to support challenging and difficult social behaviour. This unit will address issues and review current literatures about effective practices in catering for students with special education needs. At the completion of the unit students will be familiar with evidenced based approaches and whole school strategies for addressing the education outcomes for students with special education needs.
