Visiting Teacher Service: Catholic Education Services

The Visiting Teacher Service established by the Catholic Education Office Melbourne provides support to students with disabilities and impairments in Catholic schools. Services may take the form of assistance with curriculum differentiation, assistance with Individual Learning Plan development and implementation, consultancy to Program Support Groups and/or professional development.

Whilst every endeavour is made to provide support for eligible students, prioritisation is an ongoing process when considering the needs of students and the available resources.

Students eligible for service will be those diagnosed as having one of the following:

  • sensori-neural hearing loss
  • conductive hearing loss
  • unilateral hearing loss

The service provided will be dependent on the impact the hearing loss has on the student’s educational progress.

The Catholic Education Office also provides Student Support Services aimed at enhancing the capacity of Catholic primary and secondary schools to assist students with special learning needs.
