Welcome to the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET)

In order to facilitate successful outcomes and improve the educational experience for students with disability, ADCET provides information, advice and resources to disability practitioners, academics, teachers and students on inclusive practices within the post-secondary education sector.

If you've been on the ADCET website today, you might have noticed a change. October is #DyslexiaAwarenessMonth, and to mark the occasion we'll be using Dyslexie Font as the default for the next four weeks! In creating Dyslexie font, basic typography rules and standards were ignored. Instead the creator allowed the challenges of dyslexia to form his guidelines. The result is a unique, revolutionary font developed and designed for people with dyslexia to make reading, learning and working easier – and more fun. Find out more:
