Supported school transport and transition to the NDIS

CYDA policy submission.

⚠️ Content note: Mentions of violence and abuse.

The current school transport system for children and young people with disability has been of significant concern to CYDA for many years. School transport systems vary between individual states and territories.  There have been numerous incidents nationally where children have experienced abuse, violence and other harm when accessing current school transport systems. CYDA is of the view that many of the conditions imposed on children with disability who utilise these transport systems, violate and deny rights afforded under the United Nation Convention on the Rights of  the Child 1989, and the Convention on Rights of People with Disabilities 2006.
