The Disability Royal Commission wants to hear about the experiences of students with disability. Students and families can make a submission. It can be short or it can be detailed.
The Royal Commission wants to hear about:
- Experiences of violence, abuse, neglect or exclusion of students with disability (including early childhood, schools and tertiary education)
- Suggestions to prevent violence, abuse, neglect or exclusion of students with disability
- What stops the reporting or investigating of violence, abuse, neglect or exclusion of students with disability
- Examples of good practice that encourage reporting and effective investigation
- What needs to change to make schools inclusive of students with disability

A submission can be just a description of your child’s experiences. Submissions can be made in different ways. You can:
- Use the Submission form on the Disability Royal Commission website.
- Email your submission to DRCenquiries@royalcommission.gov.au
It can be deeply distressing to hear stories of abuse, restraint, exclusion and bullying. There is a phone counselling service for people affected by the Royal Commission. You can call the National Counselling and Referral Service on 1800 421 468 or via email email@example.com
