Parents, principals and teachers of non-government schools, and health professionals can refer a child to SSEN: S for support.
Relevant medical documentation is required to determine eligibility. That is:
- audiogram and accompanying report (for hearing loss)
- ophthalmologist or optometrist report (for vision impairment)
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the relevant documentation.
The educational impact of the hearing loss or vision impairment, and individual learning needs will be considered.
Principals of non-government schools can request professional learning for staff:
- to raise awareness and understanding about Otitis Media and conductive hearing loss
- to understand the causes and indicators, and how it can be prevented in schools
- to understand the impact on student learning and educational outcomes, particularly on students’ speech, language and literacy skills
- to raise awareness about classroom adjustments that can be made to enable student engagement and learning.
