Students with Disability


Support for Students with Disability

A Shorten Labor Government will invest an extra $300 million to ensure students with disability get the support they need at school.  

Under the Liberals, many students with disability are missing out on the help they need. Labor’s investment is a significant contribution towards making sure that students with disability can reach their full potential in every school and school system. 

Our commitment is in addition to the disability loading included as part of needs-based school funding. It will be allocated on a per student basis consistent with the current disability loading. 

The extra funding will deliver individualised learning for students with disability by paying for more teachers, teacher aides, teacher training, updated technology, or upgrades to school facilities to improve access. 

We will pay for it by making multinationals pay their fair share and closing tax loopholes used by the top end of town.
