ICPA aims to speak for families living in rural and remote areas who are educating their children with specific education needs. Children with specific education needs can encompass emotional, physical or neurological diversity as well as children who could be considered gifted in their physical or neurological abilities.
ICPA Aust endeavours to ensure that these children are not further disadvantaged despite their distance from appropriate educational support.
