Resources

Welcome to our resources page!

Here you will find a range of posters, handouts and more to support the inclusion of students with disabilities and developmental challenges.

Stories

We provide a range of stories that help students manage some of the challenges or changes they may experience in secondary school. Each story comes with audio so that students who are blind and low vision, or find reading challenging, can still access these stories.

Classroom resources

You can access a self-monitoring form to support students with managing their goals. Organisation can be important in secondary school, so we also have a locker checklist poster. We also provide a strengths and abilities communication checklist to facilitate communication between teachers and parents.

Social inclusion

We have provided a range of resources for facilitating the social inclusion of students with disabilities. There are handouts that help peers understand how they can include and support a student with a disability, and a poster that provide reminders on how to communicate with others.

Supporting wellbeing

We provide resources to help students learn how to manage their emotions and problem solve. We also have posters celebrating students' strengths, and you might also like to show students in your class the AllPlay Learn student site, where they can access information about seeking help.

Recognising and supporting student anxiety

AllPlay Learn’s Recognising and supporting student anxiety forms help teachers and students to reflect on:

  • a student’s early signs that they are feeling anxious
  • later signs that their anxiety is escalating
  • triggers or contributors to the student’s anxiety
  • strategies that may be effective at specific timepoints

  • Talking with families about their observations will help you develop a shared and richer understanding about the student’s anxiety. Involving students in recognising and responding to signs of anxiety can increase their autonomy and confidence. Some students may complete these forms independently, while others may find working with a trusted teacher, family member or health professional (e.g. their psychologist) helpful.

    These forms can be used to support collaboration and communication across teaching staff, which can help create consistent supportive environments that foster a student’s sense of security and capability in managing their anxiety. You may also like to consider including these forms within an existing Individual Learning Plan to support the student throughout the year.
