6. Talk about how it went

Meet to talk about how the strategy from Step 4 went. Discuss and plan how you might adapt or modify your practice.

Questions to guide reflection

  • What might our students have noticed or experienced when we tried our new approach?
  • How might we change our practice next time?
  • To what extent do we model respect for all students in our work?
  • To what extent do student preferences determine the way we provide support for physical, personal and communication needs?
  • What guidelines or policies about physical or personal support can we refer to in our school? Who do we talk to if we need more advice about providing physical or personal support?
  • What are we going to do next to improve the way we support students with complex needs in our school?
