School

Every day at Giant Steps teachers, therapists and educators work intensively on the children’s individual goals within a caring and supportive environment. We work with all age levels: in Play Steps (18 months -5 years), Early Learning (3-6 years), Kindergarten to Year 6 (5-12 years), Middle School (11-13 years) and Secondary School (12-18 years) programs.

Features of the school program include:

  • A transdisciplinary approach where speech, occupational and music therapists work with special education staff in a collaborative team developing individual programs specific to each child’s needs and abilities within the NSW Board of Studies curriculum framework
  • The school is structured around class groupings and students engage in whole class, small group, paired, individual and whole school teaching and learning programs
  • Highly trained and committed staff
  • Individualised small group instruction by specialist teachers and educators
  • Programs and therapies soundly based on current research
  • Setting of individual goals and close monitoring of a child’s progress
  • Program adjustment based on each child’s need
  • Parent consultation and guidance in helping the child at home
  • Home visits, preschool support, community outings
  • Where appropriate, transition to the child’s next educational setting
