Coburg SDS is a dynamic Special Developmental School situated in the North Western region of Melbourne. We provide a friendly and caring environment that enhances learning, personal growth and well-being for all students. The school caters for families from the northern and western suburbs, from a range of socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. Students attending the school generally reside within our designated transport area.
Our school caters for students with a primary diagnosis of developmental delay or intellectual disability. Many of our students have additional needs that impact on their learning including, but not limited to, autism, communication and high sensory needs. We provide a caring and challenging environment that enhances learning, personal growth and well-being for all students.
The school embraces a trans-disciplinary, Child Centred Learning approach that allows all students to engage as effectively as possible with the curriculum. We ensure that communication, functional skills and social and emotional learning are embedded through all aspects of our programs. Our therapy team works with teachers to develop strong, individualised learning goals, which assist our students to fully engage in their learning and maximise outcomes.
