The Woden School offers an increasing range of ASDAN modules. ASDAN is a not-for-profit organisation managed by teachers that provides a range of educational courses and modules for a range of student abilities.
Over fifty Towards Independence Modules have been formally adopted in the year 11/12 program through the Board of Senior Secondary Studies (BSSS) including: Water Skills, Creativity, Pottery and Ceramics, Popular Culture and Using Leisure Time. Some are offered as electives and others are programmed into specific classes according to individual needs. All modules allow students to take small steps in achievement towards a larger goal. Students in years 9 and 10 may elect Towards Independence Modules for their electives: Going to College, Horticulture and Independent Travel.
The modules have been developed specifically for young people with disabilities and they provide flexible learning pathways for our students and a framework of activities through which personal, social and independence skills can be developed and accredited for those with a range of learning difficulties. Sstudent's receive external recognition for the ASDAN units successfully completed.
