The QsArt has been developed for Queensland state schools and is designed to support educational leaders, principals, and heads of school or campus to reflect, plan, implement and review processes that support students with autism.
The tool is informed by evidenced-based practices, with each competency linked to Queensland Department of Education, state and federal policy, as well as the National School Improvement Tool.
The QsArt has been designed to align with existing school improvement planning, whereby the whole school is engaged in the development of improvement priorities.
Schools using the tool will set a clear direction for the year, or years ahead, to improve the engagement, retention and academic achievement of students.
All sections are interrelated and underpinned by practices that characterise effective, inclusive learning environments and strategies for students with autism.
