Re­view of Stu­dent Dis­abil­ity Sup­port

The Australian Education Reporter - - NEWS: ACT/TAS -

THE ACT Ed­u­ca­tion Direc­torate is eval­u­at­ing the sup­port that stu­dents with dis­abil­i­ties re­ceive in pub­lic schools as part of an on­go­ing con­sul­ta­tive process of the Na­tional Dis­abil­ity Strat­egy.

The strat­egy aims to en­sure stu­dents with a dis­abil­ity “achieve their full po­ten­tial through their par­tic­i­pa­tion in an in­clu­sive high qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem that is re­spon­sive to their needs”.

The Direc­torate is seek­ing a wide va­ri­ety of views on how to best sup­port both stu­dents and schools, con­sult­ing with fam­i­lies and school staff re­gard­ing sup­port for stu­dents with dis­abil­i­ties and complex needs and be­hav­iours.
