The amount of Community Based Instruction (CBI) your child or young person will undertake within school programs is determined by their age and their educational needs. Community based instruction is limited for students in the Early Years and Middle School as programming emphasises the need for skills to be developed in the school setting before they are generalised to settings outside of the school context. Whereas, students in the Senior School may have their instruction delivered within community settings for a large proportion of the school week in order to support their ability to transition successfully to a post-school life.
Throughout the school year students will have the opportunity to engage in special programs outside the school environment regardless of their year level. The benefits to students include the opportunity to increase appropriate social and community behaviours, opportunities to develop specific skills critical to independent functioning within the community, communication and a general increase of independence in community mobility.  Students will travel to these settings on the school bus or on public transport.
