Disability Standards for Education: Information products for students with disability and their parents and carers

The Australian Government Department of Education (Department) worked with Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) and students with disability and their families and caregivers to create these four resources. They aim to help you understand your rights as a student with disability, or the rights of your child, and to work with education providers to make sure you can learn and participate on the same basis as students without disability.

  • 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.
