The Department of Education, Skills and Employment has begun consultations for the 2020 Review of the Disability Standards for Education 2005.

All the information you need is at the Consultation Hub website.

You can make a submission or complete a short online questionnaire.

The consultations close at the end of Friday, 25 September 2020.

Throughout the consultation process the Department of Education wants to hear from anyone with an interest in making sure students with disability can access and participate in education on the same basis as students without disability. They are particularly interested in the experiences and views of current, former and prospective students with disability, their families and carers, advocates and educators. The discussion paper has been developed with guiding questions to help you have your say.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, engagement activities are mostly being held online.

To assist in the consultations for the 2020 Review of the Standards, the department has engaged The Social Deck. If you have questions or need help to contribute, please email The Social Deck at
