The Queensland Government provides funding to Children’s Therapy Centre to conduct the Specialist Disability Support in Schools (SDSS) Program. The program supports schools by providing funding to Children’s Therapy Centre to deliver services to improve access to and participation in the curriculum and the educational outcomes of eligible school-aged students with disability. The SDSS is delivered at the written request of the school based on the needs of the student to access and participate in the curriculum.
