The seminar will cover the meaning of reasonable adjustments and the recording of these and the communication with parents regarding decisions about the adjustments. Enrolment policies and processes will also be covered in relation to disability.      

Student codes of conduct  in relation to disability will be considered, particularly in the light of ensuring that  behaviour management processes and policies are not discriminatory, and meet new VRQA requirements. Case studies presented by the registrants will be discussed.

This seminar will set  the legal scene and discuss recent cases and examples, then the presenter will help participants through small group work and practice scenarios. Before the session, registrants will be invited to submit questions and scenarios which they would like discussed. This way the participants will be able to obtain information directly related to their own school and scenarios that they encounter.

Key takeaways                

  • an understanding of what is meant by reasonable adjustments and the related consultation with parents
  • an appreciation of what makes the enrolment process non discriminatory
  • an understanding of discipline policies and behaviour management approaches to students with disability.
