The Epping Club, Rawson St, Epping. [Event parking is limited*]

This annual conference focuses on issues and developments in the provision of quality education for students K–12 with additional learning needs in a mainstream classroom setting. Areas addressed will include literacy, accountability and assessment, behaviour management, technology and social skills instruction. More details about the program and feature speakers will be published on this page as they become available.


* Limited parking available on site at the Epping Club. A request for parking can be sent to Rachel Payne at rachel.payne@sydney.edu.au for consideration. Preference will be given to regional drivers, drivers with an Australian Disability Parking Permit and presenters. Should you be eligible for a car space, your registration number will be required for entry into the car park. Where possible please make all reasonable efforts to car pool. Because spaces are very limited, it is recommended you travel by train to the event where possible. The train station is a 2–3 minute walk from the Epping Club and is located on the Northern Line and the Newcastle and Central Coast Line, please see http://www.cityrail.info/ for timetables. Lastly, there is all-day unrestricted parking available in the surrounding streets. The Epping Club recommends Chesterfield Road and Chelmsford Avenue (7–10 minutes on foot to the venue). It is, however, advisable to arrive early to secure a space.
