The results of the national survey, conducted by Children with Disability Australia (CDA) in April 2015, confirm that children with disability face considerable barriers to a quality education.
The results reveal a system in crisis:
68% of parents surveyed believe that their children are not receiving adequate support at school
One in four children with disability has been refused enrolment at some point
A further 17% are only offered part-time enrolment.
These statistics reflect an education system not meeting the needs of students with disability. As a result many are being denied the right to a quality education.
