Children with Disability Australia wants to know about your educational experience

25 January 2011


As part of its ongoing commitment to raise awareness of the experience of children and young people with disability, Children with Disability Australia (CDA) will be presenting stories detailing our children’s experiences of education to the Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth and the Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers in the near future.

The aim of this project is to inform the Australian Government of the profound and diverse nature of issues currently impacting on children and young people with disability and their families in relation to education.

You are invited to write about your experience of education — the good, the bad and/or the indifferent. Contributions are sought from family members. Kids are welcome to contribute if parental consent is provided. It may be a powerful paragraph or it may be a lengthier contribution. CDA requests that feedback is no longer than two pages.

CDA is continuing our tradition of “telling it like it is” and believe these stories will present an extremely powerful message. Potential contributors are welcome to contact CDA via email or phone if they would like to discuss their experience or need further information.

Please let others know who you think may be interested in this issue and may wish to tell of their experience.

Finally, if people prefer that their identity is withheld from their contribution, that request will be respected.

Contributions can be emailed to Stephanie Gotlib – stephanieg@cda.org.au and need to be received by CDA by Monday 7 February 2011.
