Students with a Disability by educational setting in SA Government Schools

Full-time equivalent enrolments of students with a verified disability by education setting collected from 2012 as part of the annual enrolment data collection in Term 3.

Students with Disability are those students who are verified by a Department for Education psychologist or speech pathologist as eligible for the Department for Education Disability Support Program.

Education settings include Mainstream Classes, Special Classes, Special Units and Special Schools.

  • Special Classes are located within some junior primary, primary and secondary schools. They provide a setting for learners with a disability who need extensive curriculum support, for a short or long-term placement.

  • Special Units are located within some primary and secondary schools. They provide long-term educational options in a mainstream school for learners with very significant or multiple disabilities.

  • Special Units and Special Schools both cater for a similar range of learner needs. The difference is that Special Units provide an option within a mainstream school, while Special Schools provide the option in a separate setting.
