Ocean View College has an Area Resource class for children from Years 3-7, and as of 2022 the school will will open a secondary special class.
Students with verified disabilities & learning difficulties are supported to achieve their potential and explore viable post school pathways. Identified students participate in a range of programs including:
- Numeracy (Quicksmart)
- Literacy (Mini-Lit, Multi-Lit & Phonics
- Introception (self-regulation)
- Integrated Studies Program
- Special Area Primary Class
- Senior Students are supported by SSO’s & Study Managers in the Senior Centre and Harbor View Campus.
Students are referred on a needs basis to DfE support services for assessment for disability verification and to inform differented teaching practice based on needs. A team of committed and professional School Services Officers facilitate intervention programs and 1:1 support based on student needs.
Integrated support programme (ISP)
OVC established the Integrated Support Programme in 2018 to meet the needs of students with a disability, who may need extra withdrawal support, but engage with several of mainstream timetabled subjects. For example, students may be attempting SACE compulsory subjects as per the timetable, while also attending a support line with the ISP. This assists students to complete the required tasks by accessing focussed small group support, facilitated by one of our special education teachers and/or SSO staff.
