All students with communication support needs have the potential to learn, achieve and thrive, yet this goes unrealised if they are not understood in their schooling years.  This toolkit helps teachers provide an inclusive education to students with communication support needs so that they may reach their highest potential both academically and socially.

This resource has been developed by Communication Rights Australia in collaboration with educators, speech pathologists, students with communication support needs and their families, and the Victorian Department of Education.

Teachers can access the latest information and practical step-by-step recommendations for supporting students with little or no speech from any mobile device or desktop computer completely free of charge.

Topics include:

  1. Background on inclusion
  2. Communication methods
  3. Student profile
  4. ILP and curriculum adjustments
  5. Social supports
  6. Sensory processing
  7. Behaviour supports
  8. Implementation in the classroom
