Ready Set Go - Starting School

Teacher with a small child using building blocksStarting school is an important and exciting time. DHS has developed a guide for families of children with disability who are about to enter, or who are already in, preschool or school in South Australia. It aims to assist families to advocate for their child's learning needs.

While the guide focuses on younger children and education, the information, suggestions and resources may also be helpful for families of children with disability when accessing other non-disability-specific services or for those who are moving on to secondary school.

The guide offers tips and tools to help people speak up for a child's needs and contains practical information about children's rights, inclusive education and suggests ways to work with preschools and schools.
