A range of programs and services available in NSW public schools help students with disability and additional learning and support needs get the most out of school.
Well thought out and structured support – including targeted programs to meet specific needs – promotes participation in school activities and the school community.
These programs and services are designed to offer students personalised learning and support to meet their individual needs.
Some programs and services are provided by a student's school and do not require any external documentation or disability confirmation. Other targeted and specialist services are designed for students with a confirmed disability.
