The Ferny Grove State School Special Education Program caters for students with disabilities from Prep to Year 6. We support students with intellectual impairment, autistic spectrum disorder, speech-language impairment, physical impairment, hearing impairment and/or vision impairment.
We have a purpose-built Special Education Unit that includes two classroom spaces and a disabled toilet. However, our students spend the majority of each day in the regular classrooms, accessing the Australian Curriculum, with the support of special education teachers and aides. Students also have access to Education Queensland Advisory Visiting Teachers, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists and other specialists as required.
At Ferny Grove State School we believe that every child has the capacity to learn, that all children should have access to a quality education, and that the social-emotional development of the child is just as important as the academic. Within the Special Education Program, our motto is the African proverb, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. We look forward to sharing the journey with you through your child’s primary school years.
