What is the NEP?

 The NEP is a structured plan available in electronic form to help educators, families and learners to jointly develop
 appropriate curriculum based on the South Australian Curriculum Standards and Accountability (SACSA)

 NEP is compulsory for students identified as eligible for support under the Students with Disabilities Policy and
 includes:

The electronic version of the NEP can be borrowed from public libraries or parents can gain a copy of hte CDROM by contacting Liz Horrocks (Manager, Standards & Achievement - Disability) bycalling 08 8226 1772 or email horrocks.elizabeth@saugov.sa.gov.au

Our example NCPs maybe in a different format etc but we have left them here so parents can gain some ideas on what may be included in their child’s individual education plan.
 

Parents attending their first NEP meeting may feel uncomfortable and bewildered as to what the NEP process is about, what goes into an NEP.

This page is designed to provide a variety of examples of actual NCPs for hearing impaired children provided to PHISA by parents. Our aim for this page is to have a range of NCPs representing children of differing ages, differing levels of hearing loss, differing educational placements and differing methods of communication. Parents can view these NCPs prior to the NCP meeting of their own child and pick and choose relevant information to add to their child's NCP. The American equivalent of the NCP is the IEP (Individual Education Plan). See some IEPs for hearing impaired children.  Our example NCPs maybe in a different format etc but we have left them here so parents can gain some ideas on what may be included in their child’s individual education plan.

We are seeking your help to make this comprehensive resource a reality. Please consider providing your child's NEP for use on this page. All details identifying the child, the parents, the school and other DETE/ independent school staff are removed prior to addition to this page. If you would like to include parts of your child's NEP on this page, please post or fax a copy to PHISA.
