Abstract

In recent years there has been a noticeable change in the focus of the role of teachers who provide support for children with learning difficulties or disabilities. This report outlines the finding of research undertaken in 1999 to clarify and document the role of the Support Teacher (Learning Difficulties) in regular schools in Queensland. Support teachers (N=196) responded to a postal questionnaire about a range of issues associated with their role including time allocation, training, activities required, types of provision of support, identification and assessment, and school policy. In addition, information was obtained on the demographics of their position and about students with impairments and students with special educational needs in their schools.
