Current research on inclusive practices has identified a need for more classroom teachers to be trained in early intervention and working with students who have additional needs at pre- and post-service levels. The Master of Learning Intervention aims to do this by providing training to teachers, practitioners and early childhood educators in understanding the learning and programming needs of children and young people with disabilities, specific learning difficulties and hearing loss enrolled in specialist schools, mainstream schools and early childhood settings. This course is also appropriate for allied health professionals engaged in working with this cohort of children and young people, their families and teachers.
Students enrolled in the Master of Learning Intervention can choose to specialise in one of the following: disability, specific learning difficulties or deaf education. In addition to the four core that make up the specialty, students can choose to study two elective subjects, and either capstone Stream A or Stream B.
The Learning Intervention Internship (Stream A) is suitable for teachers who are eligible for VIT registration. Stream A requires students to design, implement and evaluate an educational intervention to support learners with disabilities, specific learning difficulties or hearing loss in educational settings. This stream involves 45 days of professional experience, including 30 days of placement in approved education settings.
The Learning Intervention Minor Projects (Stream B) is suitable for allied-health practitioners, early childhood teachers and international students. In this stream two minor projects replace the professional experience.
Please note that the Master of Learning Intervention does not provide an initial qualification for registration to teach in Australia.
