The Education Adjustment Program (EAP) is a process for identifying and responding to the educational needs of students with disability who require significant education adjustments related to the specific impairment areas of:
- autism spectrum disorder
- hearing impairment
- intellectual disability
- physical impairment
- speech–language impairment
- vision impairment.
The EAP supports schools to:
- understand and meet their obligations to make reasonable adjustments for students with disability
- identify students (from Prep to Year 12) who meet criteria for the EAP categories
- report the significant education adjustments that are currently in place to address the educational needs of these students.
The EAP has three components:
Verification requests — State schools
All verification requests are submitted through the Adjustment Information Management System (AIMS) in OneSchool.
Verification requests — Non-state schools
Verification requests in the EAP categories of hearing impairment, physical impairment and vision impairment are submitted via email to the category-specific inbox. For forms related to the categories, please refer to the forms, documents and resources page.
Schools can submit completed verification requests at any time during the year. Verification reviews should be completed as close as possible to the review dates recorded on AIMS in OS.
