• In relation to those students linked to formal support services funded by Disability ACT, the service is required to work with the service user and their legal guardian to ensure the service provision aligns with the individual’s circumstances and goals.
• Disability ACT has an intensive relationship with some school leavers and their families, as they develop and implement their plans over several years. This includes working with them to adapt their plans and supports as their circumstances or aspirations change.
• Students suited to the Transitional Service are eligible for up to three years support after leaving school to work toward their personal goals and plans.
(6) Refer to question 5.
(7) There are no qualitative measures of success rates for post school plans.
(8) Refer to question 7.
(9) Not all school leavers are seeking Individual Support Packages. In measuring the demand for disability services and support, Disability ACT considers the graduates from Black Mountain School.
(10) Disability ACT and the and Department of Education and Training have been working together over the past eighteen months to manage the impact of the alignment of school leaving age at Black Mountain School to that of other ACT students.
The alignment will occur incrementally to minimise the impact on school leavers and their families, as well as on the formal service system.
The Disability ACT funding modelling, Funding Plan Précis indicates the impact of future demand for disability services including community access supports needed as students leave the education system. The Funding Plan Précis is available on the Disability ACT website.
