Changeable and unique learner profiles
Each learner possesses a diverse set of cognitive, social, and emotional assets, knowledge, skills, interests and preferences. These characteristics interact to form a unique learner profile that changes over time.
Understanding how = Academic success
Students, particularly those with learning differences, can achieve greater academic success when they understand how they learn and use that knowledge to plan for and adapt to learning environments and advocate for themselves as learners.
Embrace differences - Personalise education
Educators should expect and embrace students’ diverse learner profiles and have the knowledge and tools to personalise their instruction based on these profiles.
Parental education and support
Parents should understand their child’s unique learner profile and have the tools to advocate for him/her.
Accountable education systems
Education systems should hold themselves accountable for the success of their students who learn differently.
Success measured using multiple frameworks
Student success should be defined using accountability frameworks with multiple indicators of academic performance as well as measures of social and emotional well-being, persistence and engagement.
