This paper was presented at the National Conference of regional Directors in 1987 and explains the NSW Government Education Policy for children with disabilities. The policy allows for children's enrolments to be turned down by their local school if funding or resources are thought not to be sufficiently available to meet a child's needs and where it is deemed that the child is not "capable of benefiting from regular school placement". The paper explains that integration in NSW means placement in a regular classroom, the support class in a regular school and special schools. There appears to be no requirement of schools to adapt or make extra effort to obtain necessary resources in meeting a child's needs. Keywords: Education, School age
