National Consistent Collection of Data - NCCD

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) is a joint state and federal government initiative.

The Data Collection is an annual national count of the number of students provided with educational adjustments as a result of their disability as defined broadly under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA).

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability will provide Australian schools, parents, education authorities and the community with information about the number of students with disability in schools, where they are located and the adjustments they receive.

Prior to Prep Program

Prior to Prep program is targeted at young children from birth to five years with suspected or diagnosed disabilities with significant educational support needs.

The purpose of this program is to enable the:

  • engagement of children in a wide range of learning experiences to maximise their individual potential;
  • assessment of educational support needs prior to Prep;
  • transition support to Prep; and
  • establishment of partnerships with families to ensure quality educational outcomes in the critical early years of schooling.

Initially the program aims at delivering family support.  This enhances parents and carers ability to support and maximise the development of their child particularly from birth to 3 years old.

Next, we focus on a more child-centred delivery of support for children aged 3-5; here we concentrate on transition to school and school readiness skills.

We use a multidisciplinary approach to support young children with disabilities and their families working both with Queensland Health and Disability Services not inclusively.
