In Australia, we have:

  • public schools – paid for by the government
  • private schools – paid for by parents.
A school

It’s important to find a school that is right for you or your child.

This includes a school that can teach you or your child in the way that they need.

You or your child might need extra support to learn, such as:

  • a screen reader
  • extra time to finish an activity
  • 1-on-1 teaching support
  • a quiet space to learn
  • learning materials in different formats, like:
    • large print
    • braille
    • videos.
  • desks that can move.

The school should provide this extra support to help you or your child learn.
