It’s that time of Term again!..

The first, virtual Inclusive Education Cafe for Term 4 is taking place next week.

Guest presenter Haley Tancredi will be joining us to cover the topic of consulting students with disability.

The topic of student consultation was raised many times across the recent Disability Royal Commission hearing into education (more about the hearing can be found here: Disability Royal Commission – Second Hearing into Education).

The hearing heard testimonies from many students and families about the barriers experienced when attempting to consult with schools around appropriate and impactful adjustments, school disciplinary measures, and attendance and engagement.

The Disability Standards for Education legislates the requirements to consult students and families. However, barriers to consultation are prevalent and ongoing.

During this Cafe, Haley will support educators to understand their obligations to consult, and what consultation is and is not. She will also provide insight into how educators can engage in consultation in a way that is supportive of students with disability.
