Advocating for Children with Disabilities in Primary and Secondary Schools

or log in to view this course.

Over the past two decades there has been very little improvement in the outcomes for children with disabilities in the the Victorian education system. We have seen very little useful data collected and recurring problems in the school system, such as restrictive practices, restricted attendance based on disability, and issues with suspension, expulsion, and exclusion. There is an urgent need to find tangible solutions and better educational outcomes for children with disabilities to enable them to successfully and independently navigate life after school.

In this Toolkit we look at what advocates can do, and the mechanisms available to them, to advocate for children with disability in the Victorian education system.
