NATIONALLY CONSISTENT COLLECTION OF DATA ON SCHOOL STUDENTS WITH DISABILITY
From 2015, all government and non-government schools in Australia will participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability. The first data collection took place in selected schools in October 2013.
The Positive Partnerships programme is the education component of the Australian Government’s Helping Children with Autism package. The programme works to build partnerships between schools and families to improve educational outcomes for students on the autism spectrum.
CHILD CARE AND EARLY LEARNING
The Government has a Ministerial Advisory Council on Child Care and Early Learning. Commencing in July 2016 the ISP objectives are to:
support mainstream child care services improve their capacity and capability to include children with additional needs
provide parents and carers with access to appropriate child care to assist them to participate in the workforce.
