NSW Dept Education and Communities: more details on funding reforms announced yesterday

More details about the reforms announced yesterday for funding to support students with disabilities have now been posted by the NSW Department of Education and Communities, under the title Every Student, Every School.  Included is a link to a booklet containing all of the documents in one place, at the top of the right hand column on this web page.


The reforms will be particularly relevant for students with Down syndrome who are classified as having 'mild' intellectual disability, and have frequently not had access to appropriate support because they did qualify for a confirmation of disability with DEC.


This page of Frequently Asked Questions also addresses concerns families might have about how the reforms will impact on students who currently do have individual funding for support in NSW public schools, or who will qualify for it in future.
