Advocating for Children with Disabilities in Primary and Secondary Schools course promo

Despite the numerous inquiries, reviews, and new programs being introduced in the past two decades, there is a lack of significant improvements in educational outcomes for children with disabilities in Victorian schools.  Very little useful data is collected and recurring problems in the school system, such as restrictive practices, restricted attendance based on disability, and issues with suspension, expulsion, and exclusion continues.

Julie Phillips, Manager, Disability Discrimination Legal Service, presented this topic at the  Advocacy Toolkit session held for advocates on 16 May 2023.  This is a summary of that session and provides useful resources to assist advocates working with children with disability in the Victorian education system.
