Working with other service providers
Your child may be receiving supports and services outside of school. State schools can work with other services when making reasonable adjustments at school.
You can talk to your school about the supports your child is receiving outside school and provide them with any reports or information you think are important. The school can consult other service providers about your child’s needs but only with your consent.
Finding support and advice
The department’s Reading and Writing Centre can provide expertise and advice to school staff and parents about a range of supports for students with reading and writing difficulties. You can find contact details on the
Reading and Writing Centre’s website.
Your child may be eligible for supports through the
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) including early intervention support for children aged 0 to 6 years.
A range of organisations can also provide other support services, assessments and advice if your child has learning disabilities. The following websites provide a good starting point to access supports and advice.
