Information on Disability

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) is a joint initiative of all Australian governments and all state and territory government and non-government education authorities. National data is collected annually to identify the number of school students with disability and the level of reasonable educational adjustment provided for them.

The NCCD uses four broad categories to classify disability: cognitive, physical, social/emotional and sensory. The information in this section reflects this categorisation. Information on specific disabilities can be found by navigating through the headings below.
