Survey report.

⚠️ Content note: Bullying and discrimination.

CYDA conducted three surveys during 2022 and 2023:

We partnered with researchers from the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne and Public Service Research Group, UNSW Canberra to analyse the data and prepare each of the three reports.

These surveys and resulting reports are part of CYDA’s ongoing commitment to understanding the experience of children and young people with disability in Australia. Taken together they give a comprehensive view into the experiences and challenges faced by children and young people with disability and their families as they begin their lifelong learning journey. 

This report, ‘Disappointment and discrimination’, captures the need for urgent change in early childhood and school settings.
