The Australian Government worked with Children and Young People with Disability Australia to co-design information resources to help students with disability and their caregivers understand their rights under the Disability Standards for Education 2005.
On this page:
Information resources are available to help you understand:
- your rights as a student with disability, or the rights of a child with disability.
- how to work with education providers to make sure you can learn and participate on the same basis as students without disability.
The content of these resources was created by students with disability and their caregivers, based on consultation with a range of disability organisations and education authorities across Australia. These resources were funded by the Australian Government.
