This survey is for families with a child aged 5-18 with challenging behaviour and difficulties in the school system. If you have more than one child with challenging behaviours please complete a survey for each child.

The information you provide will assist with:

- getting data on the number of students being fully or partially excluded from school because of their behaviour
- the impact of this exclusion on families
- our systemic advocacy work in promoting changes that enable all children to participate in school, both socially and academically
- our project work in developing workshops and resources for schools to help them to understand and respond to students with very complex needs

This survey should take around 10 minutes - a $50 Coles Myer voucher will be sent to a randomly selected respondent.

All responses will be treated with confidentiality and we do not share any personal details with third parties. All responses will be de-identified before any findings are reported on.
