Adjustments support student learning and are developed in consultation with the student or their parent, guardian or carer. Teachers make adjustments all the time. Some adjustments assist all students to learn, whether they have a disability or not. Australian law requires schools to make reasonable adjustment for students with disability. Reasonable adjustments apply to all types of learning, including excursions and camps.
