Modified subjects are designed to allow students with identified intellectual disabilities to demonstrate their learning in a range of challenging and achievable learning experiences.
Modified subjects allow students to develop their capabilities and personal learning goals. Students learn how to identify, develop, and achieve their personal learning goals in the context of the subject undertaken. To do this, students need the support of teachers, parents/carers, and other significant people in their lives.
Students are eligible to enrol in modified subjects if they have identified intellectual disabilities and will not be able to reach the performance standards in mainstream subjects because of their intellectual functioning and adaptive behaviour.
A student's achievement in a modified subject will be reported as ‘completed', with the appropriate number of SACE credits. The SACE certificate will indicate that the student has achieved the SACE using modified subjects.
The following subject outlines are available at Stage 2 of the SACE in modified form for students with intellectual disabilities:
