Support Not Seclusion Rooms

Children shouldn't be locked away in solitary confinement seclusion rooms because schools don't have the funding or training to properly support students. Kids with learning needs deserve proper support and funding. Our current schooling system is not providing this. The Government can fund education to ensure our children get the support they need.

We request that there is more funding and training for learning support in schools

    Teachers are not speech pathologists, they are not occupational therapists, physiotherapists, behavioural analysts, psychologists or registered nurses. They should not be doing the work of any of the above.

    Our children need trained professionals in their lives provided from Early Intervention through to and including school age. It should not be a fight, it should be actual delivery of “Inclusive Education”

    As a parent of two kids with mild autism, my experience has been that school simply doesn’t cater for kids like mine, yet they are legally required to be there, cared for by staff who are inadequately trained, at schools not receiving any funding for initiatives to assist them. Kids like them fit equally poorly in mainstream as they would in a special education unit.

    Going through issues with my son and getting him help. He meets all criteria, but because his dad and I have 50/50 shared care we aren’t receiving help.

    My daughter and i battled for years to gt a fair go in Kura throughout NZ, FAILED. ALL because noone would diagnose her as Dyslexic……A bright beautiful happy healthy child. They learn in a completely different way than mainstream…..She was a visual learner with talents in many genres. By the time the Head of Starship hospital diagnosed her…texting had become the norm which is how Dyzlexic people often spell….as it sounds! Get over yourselves……All children deserve the Right to be Taught.

    Yes, and ALL people working in a paid capacity with these students should be trained appropriately.
