ISSUES PAPER LAUNCH: Inclusion in Education: towards equality for students with disability.

Children with Disability Australis is interested in hearing from students and families who are willing to be involved with media interviews about inclusive education.

This Wednesday (23rd October), Children with Disability Australia is launching a landmark issues paper which aims to facilitate greater inclusion in education for students with disability. The report discusses the positive outcomes for all students of inclusive education. The paper also discusses the barriers to progressing inclusive education.

All children and young people with disability in Australia have a right to an inclusive education as stated in the United Nations Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Inclusive education is about every child’s right to be a valued member of society and to be provided with equal opportunities to actively participate in and contribute to all areas of learning. It is critical that education communities value diversity if the right of students with disability to inclusive education are to become a reality.

CDA is contacting the media and is keen to hear from students and families across Australia who are available to talk about your own, or your child(ren)’s educational experiences. This might be a radio, newspaper or TV interview. CDA would provide support and assistance to students and families wishing to assist to promote this important issue.

The paper will be available for you to download from the website on Wednesday.

If you are interested in assisting CDA with media for the launch of this significant paper please contact Sara Irvine – Media & communication Consultant at or 0402 982 002.
