New Information Resources Available on the Disability Standards for Education
The Department of Education (Department) has worked with Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) and young people with disability and their parents and caregivers to co-design a new range of resources about their rights under the Disability Standards for Education 2005 (Standards).
- You can find the resources on the Department’s website here
What are the resources?
There are four new resources:
- Explaining the Disability Standards for Education – this resource outlines what the Standards are and what they are designed to do.
- Milestones and Transitions – this resource is to help students and their parents and caregivers make their way through their education journey.
- Advocating with and for your child: Primary School – this resource is for parents and caregivers of primary school students.
- Disability Standards for Education in Practice: Action Plan – this resource is for students who are in high school or tertiary education.
Each resource is available in Easy Read format and Auslan and translated into Arabic, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Farsi, Hindi, Khmer, Korean and Vietnamese.
How The Resources were Developed
The content of the new resources was created by students with disability and their parents and caregivers, with help from CYDA.
Development was informed by consultation with a range of disability organisations and with input from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability and people with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
