How We Do It?
TEAM AROUND THE LEARNER (TAL)
The Team Around the Learner includes the student's parents, mainstream teacher, YarraMe Key teacher, Regional DET personnel, and relevant specialists supporting the student and their family. Most of the students who attend our school have experienced severe disruption in their educational progress. Some have never been able to manage formal schooling and most will have an Individual Education Plan.
Our personalised and therapeutic approach enables all students to experience success, often for the first time with significant student learning outcomes. Therapeutic education addresses emotional and cognitive development together, using a wraparound process to best meet the needs of the student. YarraMe staff think together at all times about the particular emotional and cognitive needs of each student using the "Iceberg Analogy" to assist in understanding the antecedents of student behaviour.
