The Students with Disabilities Program supports the education of students with disabilities in non-state schools and aims to promote the educational outcomes of these students.
Education Queensland provides equitable educational opportunities to ensure that all students have access to, participate in and gain positive outcomes from schooling through a range of curriculum options delivered across primary, secondary and special schools. To support this commitment, a flexible model of delivery of educational services is essential.
The Department of Education and Training (DET) is committed to the provision of quality education services for students with disabilities and special needs in communication.

Curriculum and Learning
As a parent, you have responsibility for providing or arranging your child's transport between school and home. If you are experiencing difficulty in getting your child to school, you are able to request that an assessment be undertaken to determine eligibility for transport assistance. This is a formal assessment undertaken at the school by a trained school transport assessor.
The Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting (QCAR) Framework informs the learning programs for all state school students in Years 1 to 9.
The Education Adjustment Program (EAP) is a process for identifying and responding to the educational needs of students with disabilities. Adjustments are made for students with disabilities to enable them to access the curriculum, achieve curriculum outcomes and participate in school life.
