The Scheme will comprise a panel of pre-qualified external providers and is intended to support NSW government schools across the state to meet their legal obligations to students with disability by facilitating quick and easy access to specialist allied health services where needed to enable school access, attendance and participation.

Services are expected to be available under the Scheme commencing term one 2020.
