Dprovides support, service and leadership to catholic primary and secondary schools in the Diocese of Ballarat.
Disability funding in the Catholic education system is a resource that enables schools to create inclusive environments and provide tailored support for students with diverse needs. The CECV program, funded through the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data/ SWD Students with Disabilities (NCCD), enhances schools’ capacity to make adjustments and empower people with disabilities.
Under the NCCD model, teachers use their professional, informed judgement to determine:
which of their students are being provided with a reasonable adjustment to access education because of disability, consistent with definitions and obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (the DDA) and the Disability Standards for Education 2005
the level of adjustment that students with disability are being provided with, in both classroom and whole of school contexts
the broad category of disability under which each student best fits.
