Abstract

The effective identification and monitoring of students with a disability is a complex and important aspect of educational service delivery for students with a disability in Queensland. Building on previous initiatives in this domain Education Queensland has piloted the development of the Educational Adjustment Program (EAP) profile. Based on the data from the initial survey sample of more than 1500 school age students with a disability across Queensland, this paper highlights: the design of the Education Adjustment Program Adjustment Profile (EAP); some of its psychometric properties; gender and Indigenous student dimensions within the data; and how the EAP instrument compares with the 1 to 6 ascertainment rating scale.
