The majority of disability adjustments for the NAPLAN tests can be organised and approved by the principal. Information about disability adjustments can be found in the Handbook for Principals, pages 11-18 and 42-45 and on the ACARA website. ACARA has also provided a number of disability adjustment scenarios.
NAPLAN coordinators should ensure all completed parent/carer consent forms for disability adjustments, exemptions and parent withdrawals are lodged with the school by Monday 2 May.
Translations of the parent/carer consent form are available in 35 community languages.
