Many teachers in independent schools are trained to use teaching and learning strategies to help students experiencing learning difficulties. The students are monitored individually.
Specialist teachers and integration aides work closely with class teachers and parents assisting students with disabilities attending independent schools in Victoria. Since 1995, the number of students eligible for state support services because of disabilities has increased significantly, but Australian and Victorian Government financial support for independent schools with students with disability can be limited and schools must draw on their own resources.
Some Australian Independent Schools Victoria (AISV) members cater for students with language disorders, learning difficulties, social and emotional disorders, autism and intellectual disabilities and severe to profound hearing loss.
