Every child and young person has the right to participate, learn and achieve at school.
Students with disability have the right to enrol in a school on the same basis as students without disability, and schools must make reasonable adjustments so that students with disability can participate on the same basis as other students.
You play an important part in helping to make that happen. Children and young people do best when families and schools work together.
This information will help you support your child’s education.
