Step 2: What is the level of adjustment?
In deciding whether identified students are to be included in the NCCD, teachers and school teams use their professional judgement, based on evidence, to determine the level of adjustment each student is currently being provided with.
In the NCCD, there are four levels of adjustment:
- support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice
- supplementary adjustments
- substantial adjustments
- extensive adjustments.
The frequency and intensity of the adjustments increases through the levels of adjustment.
Refer to evidence to support decisions
Teachers and schools rely on evidence to make professional judgements about the adjustments provided for students. This evidence will reflect a wide range of practices of teachers and schools in meeting the educational needs of their students consistent with obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, the Disability Standards for Education 2005 and best teaching practice.
