Schools plan and document their curriculum and assessment plans in consultation with the school community. Careful collaborative planning ensures that a student's educational needs are identified and that when identified, reasonable adjustments are made to enable curriculum access, engagement and achievement.
Multidisciplinary team planning involves collaboration and consultation with the student (where appropriate), parents, the school curriculum leaders, classroom and support teachers and other relevant specialists (e.g. advisory visiting teachers, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and guidance officers).
Individual schools and the student's educational support team use professional judgements to determine the process to provide an effective planning approach for a student with ASD. This collaborative planning may identify differentiation requirements or the need for an individual learning plan to facilitate a student's access and participation in the curriculum.
Further information regarding individual planning for students with ASD is on the Curriculum Access Planning for Differentiation for Students with ASD page and for Education Queensland state school staff in the Online transition resource package - Curriculum information for State School Staff page.
