The results of CYDA’s national survey on the education experiences of students with disability have been released. The survey of 1396 students and families provide a national snapshot of current experiences. The majority of participants stated that the level of support the student receives at school is inadequate. High rates of bullying, exclusion, restraint and seclusion are also reported.
CYDA also recently requested information about cases of abuse of students with disability through freedom of information legislation from each state and territory education department.
