Children with disability moving states to access education opportunities

Sunday, 24 January 2021

As the school year is about to begin across Australia, some students are settling into life in a new state so they can access education opportunities not available to them at home.

Victorian mother Elizabeth Ellis has moved to Brisbane with her 9-year-old son Murray who has speech apraxia.





Ms Ellis said Murray had been communicating using Auslan for several years and multiple specialists said he needed Auslan in the classroom.

She said using Auslan was helping teach Murray to speak and meant he felt included when he was with other people who signed.
