Partnering with parents

Partnerships between parents, families and schools is an important part of supporting students with disability to succeed.

Our Every Student with Disability Succeeding plan commits to supporting these partnerships and supports schools to engage with parents about their child's education.

One of the most important ways state schools partner with parents is to consult parents about the reasonable adjustments schools can make to support students with disability to access and participate in education.

The Disability Standards for Education – A practical guide for individuals, families and communities provides valuable information for parents regarding their child’s rights to education, reasonable adjustment and working together with their child’s school. We are committed to continuous improvement and we value parent involvement and feedback about a student's education to ensure they are reaching their full potential.

Support for families

The department has engaged the Community Resource Unit (CRU) to support parents of students with disability across Queensland to build self-advocacy skills and to work effectively with schools. CRU is holding a number of workshops in communities across Queensland.

CRU will also develop and share resources/case studies, host webinars, foster peer support networks and provide information to individual families and others who support the education of students with disability.

To register for a workshop or find out more about the supports available by CRU, please visit their Families for Inclusive Education website or email EducationProject@cru.org.au or telephone (07) 3844 2211.
