Improving outcomes for all students

Our classrooms are diverse and students are requiring personalised and responsive teaching and support. Schools and educators responsible must be strategic, efficient, strength-based and outcome focussed.  SILA can assist in optimising individualised learning departments and work with staff to bring excellence to this area of your school.

Jade's passion for working with students who have varied cognitive profiles has been the driving force behind SILA.  After working in a range of schools and developing a finely tuned understanding of how to best manage individualised learning departments, Jade is keen to share this knowledge and passion with schools across Australia.  

Jade's extensive experience spanning over 15 years and unique combination of attributes have provided her with a highly proficient and broad skill-set in neurodiversity and individualised learning and teaching. High-level postgraduate qualifications in Education and Psychology and currently completing a PhD in Inclusive Education ensure that Jade's knowledge of her field are current and extensive. Her employment experience encompasses roles ranging from classroom teaching, directorship and school-wide academic and pastoral care consultation, such that she has attained an experienced and distinctive perspective on strategic planning, effective management and community engagement for individualised learning within primary and secondary settings.




Individualised learning for students is an essential part of every school.  Planning and delivering educational programs that cater for the neurodiversity of students represented in each classroom is becoming increasingly important with the requirements of the Nationally Consistent Collectiong of Data (NCCD).  SILA can provide expert, strategic support to staff to develop the efficiency, productivity and outcomes for this area of your school.

Flow Chart

Strategic Planning

Developing a strategic plan is the key to optimising student outcomes in Individualised Learning Departments.  This includes developing a purposeful policy document, staffing, budget and resource management to guide future decision making.  SILA will work with the management staff of Individualised Learning in your school to develop a robust and effective plan.

Process Efficiency

Individualised learning departments are required to manage large and growing case loads.  Ensuring efficient processes in managing student data, meeting schedules, documentation requirements, to name a few, are essential to support students and make staff workloads manageable.  SILA provides experienced consultancy to develop these processes, ensuring improved time management and better student outcomes.

Neurodiversity in School Communities

Importantly, outcomes for students are greatly enhanced by a supportive school community that is educated about the varied strategies required for them to experience success.  SILA will work with staff to develop this area of your school culture, promoting understanding and accessibility for all students.
