Fremantle College autism support boost
FREMANTLE College is set to expand its autism program for 2019, receiving a boost of resources and increased capacity.
Fremantle College currently has an autism program in place that allows kids to learn in mainstream classes.
Fremantle College principal Myles Draper said he was really excited to have the specialist program at the college.
“We will be working with local primary schools, families and external agencies to make sure the program achieves success for students with autism in our vibrant school community,” he said.
“Students will benefit from expert teachers, additional support, resources and fantastic new opportunities, all in a customised learning environment.
“All staff involved in the program have completed extensive professional learning programs so they can give the best support and opportunities to students with autism spectrum disorder.”
Fremantle MLA Simone McGurk said the news would be welcomed by parents weighing up high school options. Results had been encouraging so far and they wanted to expand on that.
