Following acceptance of a referral, a Service Agreement is developed with the client site outlining:

  • a description of the nature of the support requested

  • obligations of the service provider
  • obligations of the preschool or school
  • details of how and when the delivery of the support will be monitored and reviewed

Kilparrin Statewide Support teachers can provide assessment of functional vision and/or functional hearing in the educational setting.

Assessments may include:

  • Functional Vision Assessment
  • Functional Hearing Assessment
  • Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI) Range
  • Learning Media Assessment

Curriculum Support
Informal and formal observations and assessments are used to provide information to the supported site as to the functional implications of the vision impairment and/or Deaf or Hard of Hearing.

Kilparrin Advisory Teachers can provide:

  • information regarding curriculum accomodations to support students with sensory impairment
  • strategies to support teaching students with sensory impairment
  • advice regarding resources to support student access to the program
  • advice regarding assistive technologies that may support students to access the curriculum

Orientation and Mobility (O&M)

Students who are supported by Kilparrin Statewide Support Service are eligible to receive O&M instruction through Guide Dogs SA/NT. If required, this is available through The Department for Education MAC:SWD* funding, for IESP* funded students. A referral is made through Kilparrin Advisory Teachers who work collaboratively with instructors to achieve positive learning outcomes for students.  

O&M is a key facet of the Expanded Core Curriculum for Students with Vision Impairment. O&M focuses upon the development of independent movement skills and is part of the child’s program every day as they move around the home, school campus or the classroom.
