JOIN OUR SCHOOL CAMPAIGN!

Autism South Africa, Down Syndrom South Africa and the National Council of & for Persons with Disabilities have received hundreds of complaints from parents of children with disabilities, who are currently out of school. These parents have shared the difficulties they face when trying to enrol their children into school.

These organisations are now working on collecting information to present to the national Department of Education in order to demand that they place your and all other children with disabilities into school.

In order to do this we need you to fill in a form telling us about your child and how long your child has been out of school.
