Inclusion starts at school.
We’re here to help teachers create more disability-aware and inclusive classrooms, build their knowledge and confidence to support students who have a disability which in turn shapes the attitudes of future generations.
While most people want to be welcoming and inclusive of people with disability, they often lack the confidence and skills, or might not know where to start. This uncertainty prevents true inclusion and can leave people feeling isolated and marginalised.
That’s where we come in, our school programs for classrooms, students and staff teams will help you build confidence and a positive culture and inclusion across your school community. The programs can be delivered in the classroom in Victoria, or online nationally.

Our programs for student groups provides them with a toolbox of skills including the confidence to engage with people with disabilities, new ways to communicate and skills to be more inclusive.

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2022, 89% of students with disabilities attend mainstream schools. Our program provides staff with tools and strategies to successfully support students with disabilities and create inclusive classrooms. Staff come away with effective communication strategies and inclusive teaching practices to embed in the classroom and curriculum.
This training contributes to professional learning standards across all Australian States and Territories.
You may have noticed, we have changed the name of our service. Formerly named Disability Awareness, we have changed to Disability Inclusion to capture the essence of what we do and make it easier to find us.
