Learning support

At Buderim Mountain State School we cater for students who have a diverse range of educational needs. Our school-based and visiting specialist staff work together to meet with students and review their individual needs regularly. Tailored programmes can then be developed to address the social and emotional needs of students and assist them in achieving their goals.
Our literacy and numeracy support teachers and our class teachers work to deliver support programmes in the student’s regular class environment wherever possible. On occasions, some support programmes are offered in alternative settings. Parents will be advised of such an occurrence, and we work closely with families throughout the entire process.
An example of one of our latest support services is the Story Dogs programme. Aimed at improving children’s literacy and confidence, a local volunteer brings their trained Story Dog to school, and students participate in a one-on-one reading session. The child gets to practise their reading skills in a friendly, relaxed and non-judgemental environment. The benefits for children can be life-changing.
