The NSW department of Education recently conducted an audit to examine how well the Department is managing the transition for students with disability (starting kindergarten, high school, or changing schools), and supporting teachers to improve these students’ educational outcomes. It estimates over 91,000, or around 12 per cent, need help with their learning due to disability. This may include physical or intellectual disability, or disorders affecting communication or mental health. Around 80 per cent of these students are enrolled in regular classes in public schools, with the remaining enrolled in specialist support classes.
