There are several enrolments options for students with a disability. Students with a confirmed disability may be enrolled in any one of the following:
- regular classes (subject to standard enrolment procedures)
- support classes in regular schools (subject to placement panel procedures)
- special schools (subject to placement panel procedures).
The School Principal at your local mainstream school, in consultation with the school's Learning and Support Team, will assist you to find the right schooling option for your child, taking into account your choice, your child's specific additional learning and support needs and proximity to local specialist services.
After making an appointment with the principal at your local mainstream school, gather your child's recent medical assessments to take to this meeting.
When a child is enrolled in a support class or a special school this process is known as a placement panel.
