Kidman Park Primary School

Learning Centre

Welcome to the Kidman Park Primary School Unit for Students with Severe Multiple Disabilities. (The Learning Centre)

The school has a specially designed Unit for Students with Severe Multiple disabilities.  The students who attend the Learning Centre for their special programs are all aligned with a peer class, take part in some lessons with their mainstream peers and are a part of all school events.

They have a number of permanent staff to assist in their learning and welfare and a number of visiting support staff from NOVITA.  The Unit has a specialist program called the Principles of Conductive Education, which is supported by two Hungarian trained Conductors.

Enrolment in the Learning Centre is via the region Special Class Placement Process. Further information is available from the Learning Centre Coordinator.

CONDUCTIVE EDUCATION

The school has a Conductive Education program for students with physical disabilities.  The program operates within both Learning Centre classrooms along with pre school programs and a mobility group held once a week for students also enrolled at other schools.

Kidman Park Primary school is the only primary school in South Australia offering these programs.

Enrolment in any of the pre school programs or the mobility group is by an assessment completed by the conductors.  Further information is available from the Special Education Resource Unit: 8235 2871.

  

LIBERTY SWING

The school is lucky to have a Liberty Swing (wheelchair accessible) thanks to Variety SA. Community members can access the swing after hours. A key is available from the learning centre staff.
 It also includes a key to open our school gates.
