Hayley Catches Up

Hayley catches up

Hayley is now a healthy Year 8 girl, but for many years she was in and out of hospital, and there were long periods when treatments interfered with her ability to participate in learning. As a result, there are gaps in Hayley’s knowledge, which are becoming apparent as she engages with more complex tasks. The Disability Standards for Education apply to Hayley because she is having learning difficulties as a result of a previous medical condition. The school discusses this with Hayley and her parents and together they plan for Hayley to have educational support to assist her where gaps in learning have been identified.
