School program for students with a disability

The number of students in Queensland state schools with a disability is increasing. The highest rates of growth are students diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and hearing impairment.

Schools may need to make reasonable adjustments to the way they teach students with disability, or the way the students access the school, to ensure they can participate. For example, where some students with autism spectrum disorder find handwriting stressful and difficult, the school may use word processing technology as an alternative.

All schools receive resourcing to support students with disability and can request access to a range of regional specialist services.
