Learning and school

There is a lot to think about when starting high school:
  • Will the experience of high school be similar to primary school?
  • Will support and resources be available if needed?
  • Will the chosen high school support full inclusion?
  • Will the school be the right fit for the young person’s physical and cognitive abilities?

Communication between students, families, schools and support teams is so important to a successful transition and high school experience, whether in a mainstream or supported setting. It is one of the key aspects to focus on getting right during this big change.
