In schools, the Disability Standards for Education (2005) are used to ensure that students with disability, including learning difficulties, can access and participate in education without disadvantage. In addition, they help to clarify the obligations of staff and guide decisions regarding reasonable adjustments at school and in other education settings.
The Disability Standards for Education are currently under review and AUSPELD is preparing a submission for the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) regarding the experiences of students with learning difficulties, their parents and their teachers. AUSPELD and the individual State SPELDs would like to use the information you provide to inform this submission. From your own experience working with students with learning difficulties, please answer the following questions as accurately as possible. All information provided will be kept confidential. Please feel free to skip any questions that are not relevant to your situation.
Can you please complete this survey by Thursday 10th September, 2020. Thank you!
