The Australian Capital Territory Chapter of AASE

AASE has been in the ACT for many years supporting people with disabilities and their families. Our members come from many walks of life and come together to share our knowledge and expertise around disability and students with additional needs.

Our hope for the future is to increase our membership, especially with new educators, so that we can include fresh views and ideas that can move us forward in the coming years.
