Welcome to The Gap State High School’s Disability/Learning Difficulties Parental Engagement Group (The PEG). Supporting parents support their student is what we are all about.
Getting your child through school can sometimes be a challenge, when they have disabilities, learning or emotional difficulties, it can feel isolating and impossible.
It is vital to be able to connect with other parents who are sharing a similar experience, or who have been through it, and are almost out the other side.
The PEG is here for you, and ready to provide a chance to get together with other parents at our meetings. Learn what has worked for some parents, what hasn’t, what’s going on in disability/education policy, where to find a good speech pathologist, and just talk to others who understand what you’re going through.
You don’t have to have a specific diagnosis, if you are worried things don’t seem right come along and have a chat.
Please email the group co-ordinator, Terri Bainbridge (Mum to an awesome son with Dyslexia) at PEG@thegapshs.eq.edu.au to find out more, or ask any questions you may have. Email us to be added to our contact list, and you’ll be sent information on meetings, events and other useful material.
Meetings are generally held the last Thursday of the month at 7pm in the school library, or as advised in the school newsletter.
