Heath Wild - Project Officer, Collaboration Initiatives

Why Positive Partnerships?

I have always been impressed by the quality of engagement and support that Positive Partnerships offers parents, carers, and teaching professionals. The opportunity to be a part of such a high quality program is something that I am very grateful for.

What personal values and attributes do you bring to the role?
I am hoping to achieve a greater understanding of the lived experiences of students on the autism spectrum and work in collaboration with families and schools to explore the most effective ways in which to engage and support them.

Tell us about your previous roles
I have previously worked within the education sector as a teacher and member of school executive teams. I have taught and supported students from preschool to high school, within specialised and mainstream settings. I have always enjoyed finding creative ways in which to engage students and supporting them within a positive behaviour approach. I believe in working in collaboration with families and schools to meet the student where they are able to be met and encouraging them to achieve all that they are able to.
