Learning and school

Building ongoing positive partnerships between families, teachers and school support teams is a big part of a successful school experience.

For children with cerebral palsy and similar conditions, physical and cognitive abilities may make engaging in learning activities at school challenging. Physical access around a school, transport, individualised learning needs, communication and behaviour support, participation in the curriculum and making friends, are all important parts of ensuring inclusion in education settings and encouraging children to reach their full potential.

Play continues to be an important part of children’s day-to-day life at school. Play begins to encompass rules, a set structure and have a strong social element. Strengthening children’s ability to play in this manner will improve social skills, cognitive skills and understanding the world around them.
