Online Professional Learning Course Support Materials

The online professional learning course assists teachers to effectively implement the ABLES assessment tool.

It is a free online course suitable for teachers and educational support staff.  The course comprises five modules, each focussing on a specific element of the ABLES suite of resources and each requiring approximately 30 minutes of online participation to complete. A certificate of completion is available at the conclusion of each module.

The professional learning modules provide information on:

  • legislative provisions, reasonable adjustments and equitable participation for students with disability and additional needs
  • how to complete the ABLES assessments
  • how to interpret and use the reports generated by the assessments
  • linking the report information to curriculum planning, teaching and learning to better support students with disability and/or additional learning needs.
