The SWAN Intensive Teachers work with classroom teachers to improve student achievement, considering the holistic developmental needs of individual students. They also support classroom teachers in enabling students with disability to access and participate in the curriculum.  The SWAN Intensive Teachers provide additional expertise in planning, teaching, assessing and monitoring student progress and support the documentation of intervention practices for identified students.  

Working collaboratively with other specialists and stakeholders such as Head of Curriculum, the Guidance Officer, Speech Language Pathologists and outside agencies, the SWAN Intensive Teachers coordinate services to improve learning outcomes for students. In particular, through collation and tracking of data, students’ progress is monitored to ensure continued learning. Their role requires liaison with parents, classroom teachers and therapists to ensure the educational priorities for all students are met.
