Special education needs to be just that: first rate; best practice; uncompromising; creative education that enables all of our children to fulfil their potential. This book is the story of an innovative school that will challenge you to re-think how special education is taught. Port Phillip Specialist School has received national and international recognition as a bestpractice model for educating children with special needs. The school has a unique threepronged approach to education. It uses: a fullservice school model, in which a wide-range of educational, medical, paramedical and mental health services operate collaboratively within the school; an integrated model of service delivery, in which teachers, specialists and therapists collaborate to address the specific needs of each student, embedding therapy in all classroom activities; and an arts-based curriculum that uses dance, drama, music and the visual arts to teach literacy, numeracy and living skills. An Extraordinary School will inspire those who want to re-model how special education can be taught and the story of Port Phillip Specialist School illustrates how effective the entire community can be in making change happen. Sarah James talks about An Extraordinary School on The Circle Recent media for An Extraordinary School in Education World and The Huffington Post
