Disability funding ‘vital for children’: parents travel to Canberra seeking support

IT HAS been a parent’s nightmare: the death of a husband when their younger son is two, and before the child is diagnosed with a major disability.

Kate Walsh of Menai, who faced both challenges, was left with the problem of finding the best schooling for her son Cameron, 10.

After attempts to have him settled at four schools, Ms Walsh in March went with a group to Parliament House, Canberra, to meet politicians and see the promised full disability loading being applied next year, allowing students with a disability to take part in the same way as other students.
