Curriculum provision to students with disability The requirements for curriculum provision to students with disability are specified in the P-12 curriculum, assessment and reporting framework ; with additional information provided below. Further advice for schools to ensure a cohesive response to diverse learning needs and consistent practice in supporting student learning is provided in A whole school approach to support student learning . The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) and the Disability Standards for Education 2005 (DSE) require education providers to make reasonable adjustments to assist a student with disability to participate in learning and to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding. 1 The DSE (Part 3) describes the process for determining if a reasonable adjustment is necessary. All Queensland education providers are required to adhere to the DSE. The DSE provides a framework to ensure that students with disability are able to access and participate in education on the same basis as other students. The DSE does this by providing clarity and specificity for education and training providers and for students with disability. The DSE is intended to give students with disability the same rights as other students. Defining students with disability 2 The Department of Education, Training and Employment adheres to the definition of disability as outlined in Section 4 of the DDA. This legislation defines disability, in relation to a person, as: a. total or partial loss of the person’s bodily or mental functions; or b. total or partial loss of a part of the body; or c. the presence in the body of organisms causing disease or illness; or d. the presence in the body of organisms capable of causing disease or illness; or e. the malfunction, malformation or disfigurement of a part of the person’s body; or f. a disorder or malfunction that results in the person learning differently from a person without the disorder or malfunction; or g. a disorder, illness or disease that affects a person’s thought processes, perception of reality, emotions or judgment or that results in disturbed behaviour.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
