​About learning difficulties

There are many types of neurological conditions that can cause learning or other difficulties. These are likely to be ongoing and adjustments may be needed at school. Some students may need therapy or intervention both at school and outside of school.

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 is important. The school can consult other service providers about your child’s needs but only with your consent.

Finding support and advice

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 wide range of organisations can also provide other support services, assessments and advice if your child has a neurological condition. The following websites provide a good starting point to access supports and advice.
