Parent Feedback and Complaints

Overview

The Resource Centre supports the on-site programs and provides resources to assist the support teachers in service delivery to other schools, centres and homes.

The Kilparrin Resource Centre is a shared facility with the South Australian School for the Vision Impaired, although the collections are entirely separate.

The professional collection comprises a comprehensive range of texts reflecting Kilparrin's specific areas of focus. These are:

  • the education and functional assessment of students with sensory impairment (vision and/or hearing) and additional disabilities
  • Deafblind education
  • Orientation and Mobility
  • Augmentative and Alternative Communication
  • Lilli Nielsen's Active Learning approach 

As well as maintaining an up-to-date collection of books on these subjects, Kilparrin also subscribes to relevant journals and associations.

A range of children’s books have been adapted using:

  • large print
  • Braille
  • Auslan
  • Auslan signs in English word order
  • picture symbols
  • a range of electronic formats
  • book boxesGrandpa and Thomas (Pamela Allen, Penguin Australia, 2005)

Book boxes contain a range of items to augment the text e.g. Grandpa and Thomas (Pamela Allen, Penguin Australia, 2005) - spray bottle of water, towelling, sunblock, umbrella, feather, shells, textured sand on cardboard.
