3.10. Additional support needs in a Peer Group
All Peer Groups contain Olaves of many different abilities, interests, skills and capabilities. Some Peer Groups contain Olaves with additional support needs, and this section provides some information to ensure that all Olaves are accommodated within a Peer Group.
All Olaves must ensure that any special or additional needs are noted on registration forms or ADM.28 forms when attending events. This is important for the safety and enjoyment of everyone at events. Olaves who are running activities or events where there will be participants with additional support needs should consider whether extra staff or carers are required.
The NSW-ACT Girl Guides Special Needs websites contains useful information and stories: http://www.specialneedsgirlguides.com.au
Check out the Learning Topic on Supporting Others.
“My Peer Group consisted of such different individuals who would have never met or become friends if it wasn’t for the Olave Program.”
