Support for Students with Disabilities

  • Our schools have a genuine commitment to serving the needs of children with learning and life disabilities.

  • Students with disabilities are welcome in our schools. Notwithstanding the limitations of funding (particularly at the State and Territory level), enrolments of students with learning disabilities are increasing in our schools and we are doing the best we can with limited resources to meet their needs.

  • The use of the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD) for Students with Disabilities (SWD) is relatively new in its application. This formula requires quite some refinement, particularly as it is fundamentally based on individual teacher understanding of the definitions.
