Curriculum

At Maryborough Special School, the Australian Curriculum (ACARA) forms the basis of our curriculum framework. We also draw specific curriculum content to meet individualised learning needs from Lilli Nielsen’s Fiela Curriculum, and the P-Scales for assessing and reporting on pupils with special educational needs who are performing below the Foundation level of the Australian Curriculum. Our pedagogical framework is based on Robert Marzano’s Art and Science of Teaching (ASOT). For more information go to MSS Pedagogical Framework. The school utilises a range of disability specific pedagogies including: Active Learning, TEACCH, Intensive Interaction and The Four Blocks Way to Literacy. For more information go to our Two Year Cycle Curriculum. The school implements a range of learning programs for literacy and numeracy including Reading Eggs, Study Ladder, Soundwaves, Jolly Phonics, Magic 100 Words (M100W), Dolch Sight Words, Salisbury Sight Words and Reading Our Way.
