How to Enrol
Students must satisfy certain criteria to enroll into an Education Support Centre. They must have:
- An intellectual disability usually diagnosed by a psychologist who assesses cognitive functioning (usually through the administration of an appropriate IQ Test), adaptive functioning & developmental / background history.
- In some cases children with high needs autism, physical disability or diagnosed mental health issues may be able to enrol.
To enrol your child into Wirrabirra Education Support Centre it is recommended that parents make an appointment to meet with the Principal. At this meeting the school will obtain information to assess whether your child meets the eligibility criteria. Often a full psychologist’s report or a letter from Disability Services Commission verifying intellectual disability is useful. Each enrolment is considered on an individual basis. The application must also be reviewed and approved by the Regional Education Support Consultant.
