Media Access Australia reviews the Draft National Curriculum

Tuesday, 27 April 2010 10:10am

Media Access Australia’s (MAA) education team has completed a review of the Draft National Curriculum, and Education Manager Anne McGrath recently spoke with Vision Australia Radio about the lack of accessibility considerations for students with sensory impairments.

The Federal Government’s Draft National Curriculum was released last month for public viewing and feedback, and will remain open until 23 May. The draft is comprehensive, covering the subjects of English, History, Maths and Science, and is available online.

Key concerns voiced by MAA include the need for teacher professional development to focus on access to curriculum support materials for students with sensory impairments. The importance of considering these students as a specific group, with particular access needs, in regard to the National Curriculum should not be discounted.
