IAN LUSCOMBE

Experience is what sets Ian apart from others. Experience and an acute sensitivity to the needs of students with emotional and behavioural issues and of the needs of the adults who work with them. Ian has been in Special Education for over 28 years and for the last 14 years was Principal of Redbank School, Westmead, NSW. Redbank is the only joint Department of Health and Department of Education facility in NSW for the treatment of children (preschool to Yr 6) and adolescents (Yrs 7 to12) with emotional, psychiatric and / or behavioural disorders.  Ian co-established at the beginning of 2009 a class for emotionally disturbed preschoolers. This initiative, the second of its type in Australia, received media attention across Australia and overseas and is seen as an exemplar of a preventative mental health program.

Ian has been a mentor to aspiring and established principals and a trainer and coach in PBIS (Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports).

Ian is in high demand as a speaker and has spoken extensively across Australia (conferences, schools, universities, NSW parliament house) on practical behaviour management strategies and on ways to enhance teacher welfare in schools. He is on the advisory board for the Adolescent Brain Website of the University of Toronto, Canada. He is still sane.
