The Disability Standards for Education

Know your rights

CYDA has been working with the Australian Government to develop a series of resources to help students with disability, their families and their caregivers to understand their rights in the education system. 

These resources were co-designed by young people with disability and their families and are available in Easy Read, Auslan and community languages Arabic, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Hindi, Vietnamese, Persian, and Khmer.

Organising supports in education

Tools and workbooks to help you advocate for yourself, or for your child, and organise support in the Australian education system.

These resources cover a student’s journey from early childhood through to TAFE or university.
