(3) The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data is an annual collection that counts the number of school students with disability and the level of reasonable educational adjustment they are provided with. The data identifies the student’s broad type of disability, located at Attachment B and the student’s level of adjustment, located at Attachment C. It does not identify specific adjustments and as such are not referenced in the data collection. It is also important to note that providing a safe environment could be a reasonable adjustment in all categories.

(4) As per previous question, the NCCD collects the level of adjustment required not specific adjustment.

(5) As per previous question, the NCCD collects the level of adjustment required not specific adjustment.

(6) The Commonwealth Government is responsible for the preparation and release of the report on NCCD data. Parent will have access to the national report when released and can access further information about the data set at https://www.education.gov.au/what-nationally-consistent-collection-data-school-students-disability.

(7) All students accessing disability education programs have an Individual Learning Plan (ILP). An ILP is a collaborative process between the school, family, students (where possible) and other professionals that identify adjustments required for the student to access, participate and engage in the learning environment. An ILP is not curriculum.

All students in the ACT have access to the Australian Curriculum (AC). The AC provides teachers with flexibility to cater for student diversity, including students with autism, through personalised learning. Students may work at, below or above age level in different curriculum areas based on their individual need. Such adjustments are not recorded or reported, as they are considered part of usual teaching practice.

(8) ILPs are not reported to the NCCD. Refer to question 3 for NCCD reporting requirements.
