Specialist Schools and Education Centres


Specialist schools provide education for students with disabilities. Different programs are available in regular schools to support students with disabilities. This support may be provided either in mainstream classes or in special classes. An education unit at The Canberra Hospital assists students who are confined to hospital for long periods.

Provision is made within schools to cater for the needs of children with special skills and abilities as well as for children with learning or behavioural difficulties.

Additional information on programs for students with special needs may be obtained from the Disability Education Section of the Education Directorate, telephone (02) 6205 6925.
