ATEND's submission to the 2020 Disability Standards for Education Review

ATEND is pleased to submit to the 2020 review of the Disability Standards for Education 2005 and will make comment on whether, and to what extent, the Standards are making a positive difference towards students with disability being able to access education and training opportunities on the same basis as students without disability. Overall, ATEND believes the Standards do make a positive difference in tertiary education, are widely implemented by tertiary providers and generally contribute to positive outcomes for students living with disability. ATEND would like to draw attention to specific aspects of the Standards which we feel could be improved to contribute to even better outcomes.  (September 2020)
