Whilst there is no direct material related to ADHD on the website, there is material that should help you to make an informed judgement about how disability is interpreted in relation to the NCCD.
- The ‘definitions of disability’, which are defined in the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA), can be found via the following link: https://www.nccd.edu.au/wider-support-materials/definitions-disability-and-nccd-categories.
- The following link gives further information on eligibility of students to be considered as disabled: https://www.nccd.edu.au/wider-support-materials/when-student-eligible-be-included?parent=/understanding-nccd&activity=/wider-support-materials/what-nccd-model-1&step=0
- The DDA/DSE e-learns also give information on how disability classifications are made (the e-learns are separated by school age range and/or different educator roles): https://www.nccd.edu.au/resources-and-tools/professional-learning/format/e-learning-5
If the above links do not help with the answer to your question, or you have a specific case/scenario in mind, it is advised that you reach out to your state/jurisdiction key contact. The details can be found at https://www.nccd.edu.au/help-and-support/key-contacts, however feel free to contact email@example.com if you require any assistance with this.
