Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training
The Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) provides information about teaching, learning and assessment strategies, accommodations and support services for people with disability in post-secondary education and training.
This website has a broad range of books and resources to support people working with supported employees. Most of the materials are American but, this does not detract from the usefulness of much of the material. There is specialist material about topics such as developmental disability , learning disability, communication and language, behaviour, and mental health. The website provides access to professional references and practical handbooks for assessment tools.
