The role of the Diverse Learning Hub (DLH) is to provide individualised specialist support for students with disabilities. Caboolture State High School specialises in programs for students with hearing impairments and intellectual impairments. Students with speech-language impairment, autistic spectrum disorder and physical impairments are being supported and have access to specialist services.
Students access a range of support and program choices depending upon their individual needs, their subject choices and available staff.
Students access all their subjects within mainstream classes. Students in Years 8, 9 and 10 have the opportunity to be members of a collaborative class where the special education teachers and the subject specialist teach as a team for their core classes. Students may have Diverse Learning Hub teachers or teacher aides supporting in their elective classes. Students in Years 11 and 12 may have Diverse Learning Hub teachers teaching their mainstream core subjects and teacher aides supporting in their electives.
The type of support will depend upon student need and may include interpreting and/or note taking for deaf/hearing impaired students; or assistance to stay on task; or assistance understanding requirements of tasks; or assistance carrying out tasks and assessment support. Students follow the same units of work and assessment tasks as their peers. Others may have modifications to the curriculum to meet their individual needs.
