Clifford Park Special School aims to provide a supportive learning environment where individual students achieve educational outcomes to assist them in their transition to post school life.
It was established as a new special school in 1990.
All students enrolled are diagnosed with an Intellectual Disability, while some have multiple impairments (physical or sensory including Autism Spectrum Disorder). The 120+ students who are currently enrolled benefit from modern technology (internet, interactive whiteboards, iPads, laptops) as well as a heated swimming pool, in-ground trampoline and sensory play area.
The Denise Kable Campus, our second campus at 58 Ramsay Street
Toowoomba, was opened in 1998. It provides centre-based and outreach support for students with
challenging behaviours. The Behaviour Support Team work directly with schools
to build capacity to create safe and supportive environments. The Positive
Learning Centre (PLC), situated on the Denise Kable campus, is accessed on a
referral basis, and supports students who have require intensive behavioural
support. The TALES program, situated in
a facility in Neil Street Toowoomba, targets young people who are currently under
Orders from Youth Justice. In addition
the Denise Kable Campus also offers Electives for students on a short-term
basis to enhance their learning opportunities.
Both campuses of Clifford Park Special School use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL).
