  1. Any special needs teachers who have migrated from India? How is it there? Success in careers? Are there vacancies?
  2. Hi, we are looking at making the move back to Oz to be closer to my husbands family. Our kids have Australian citizenship so we will have no visa problems here. My son has autism, NHS diagnosed in December 2017. He currently attends a mainstream primary school in the UK but the school has a provision for ASD - although our son doesn’t access this it does mean the SeNCo and teaching staff are incredibly experienced and the school is very inclusive. My son academically is in line with his peers and so his school work is not an issue but he does receive some 1:1 support for movement breaks/O.T and to set up visual timetables/now and next boards. Looking at schools in Brisbane as well as media relating to autism in schools in Australia I’m worried that he will find school very challenging. So my question is how inclusive are state primary schools, will NHS diagnosis be recognised as well as UK occupational therapy reports or will we need to have these redone in Australia? Lastly if anyone has their own experiences they would like to share if love to read them.
  3. Hi, I moved to Sydney (from London) 13 years ago and have finally had enough of the rat race. I'm moving with my family to the Sunshine Coast and looking for advice about the best locations for beaches, shops, schools etc My 2 boys have special needs and one will need to go to a special school - it appears that Nambour and Currimundi are the only options. My other boy has mild autism so I'm hoping to find a location that is best placed for him i.e. Primary schools that have a good reputation for helping kids on the spectrum and plenty of local therapists. If you have kids with special needs and live in the Sunshine Coast, I'd love to hear your thoughts and advice on our move to the Sunny Coast. Thanks Sue

    Special Needs Schools in Melbourne

    We are often asked on here about special needs schools in and around Melbourne. Some I would recommend are: Elwood Primary Caulfield South Primary Williamstown North Primary Trafalgar Primary Gippsland and one that the parents sing the praises for is Manor Lakes College. Also take a look here http://www.independentschools.vic.edu.au/schools/pubs/special_schools_2008.pdf

    Teachers on SS?

    Hi All, I'm fairly new to this so please bear with me. I'm a Special Needs teacher and really looking to heading out to Australia but would prefer to have a job to go to as opposed to getting visa and then looking for a job. IAfter recieving some excellent advice from some peeps on here I looked on to state websites and ACT do sponsor teachers if they are on the list but I wondered if anyone else had / was going down this route. Any info or encouragement would be gratefully recieved. Many Thanks Rinnesbird :unsure:
