Learning support

Richmond Public School offers learning support to any student experiencing learning difficulties in class.

Autism satellite classes

Autism Spectrum Australia (also known as Aspect) is a not-for-profit provider of services and assistance to people with autism and their families. Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are lifelong developmental disabilities characterised by marked difficulties in social interaction, impaired communication, restricted and repetitive interests and behaviours and sensory sensitivities.

The word ‘spectrum' is used because the range and severity of the difficulties people with an ASD experience can vary widely. ASDs include autistic disorder, Asperger's disorder and pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified, which is also known as atypical autism. Sometimes the word 'autism' is used to refer to all ASDs.

Aspect Western Sydney School Richmond Satellite is an autism-specific class located at Richmond Public School. The class is to cater for our students who may benefit from a mainstream education setting. Aspect Western Sydney School Richmond Satellite consists of up to 10 students, in Stages 1, 2 and 3, 1 full-time teachers and teacher's aids.

In keeping with the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) requirements, the students are following the prescribed syllabus in all key learning areas (KLAs). In addition to this, the students also work towards achieving their individual goals as determined at their annual individual planning meeting.

All students integrate in readings groups, sport, assembly and most activities and events that occur in Richmond Public School.

The teacher in charge for classes in K6A Richmond Satellite is Miss Commins..
