always helping educators make the right choice
Mark Barber has been involved in the education of learners with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities [PIMD] for over 25 years, both as a teacher and a consultant in Melbourne and the UK. His professional interest has always focused on supporting people with this level of disability to learn about communicating and building relationships with others. Since arriving in Melbourne, he has continued to work in the classroom, both directly with students with very complex needs, but also working alongside their teaching teams and allied health professionals. His role at Bayside Special Developmental School involves supporting staff to develop their skills as interactive partners and to support learning through cognitively appropriate and socially inclusive learning experiences. Since introducing the approach known as Intensive Interaction to Australia in 2003 at the AGOSCI conference in Sydney, Mark has worked with staff from over 100 schools and agencies from all of Australia’s states.
