At Burwood East Special Developmental School, we enrol students with a diagnosed moderate to severe intellectual disability. Your child must be eligible for funding through the Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) under the category of Intellectual Disability. 


BESDS Enrolment Policy (updated in 2022)

We recognise that enrolment in a specialist school setting may be daunting and challenging for families. We are happy to advise and provide support as you explore all the options across specialist and mainstream school settings. We are very happy to help you to make the most informed choice for your child. You can also find more information about schools in your local area from the department's Find My School website.

Please contact us at the school to discuss a potential application for enrolment and obtain enrolment forms. In most cases, we can undertake the necessary assessments here at school, and families do not need to incur unnecessary personal expenses.
