Special Assessment Conditions – information for parents and caregivers

Who can apply for SAC?

Your child may have sensory, physical, medical and/or learning difficulties/disabilities that might be able to be overcome or reduced considerably with appropriate assistance.

Let the school know when your child enrols at their secondary school or as soon as a possible need is suspected or identified. The earlier that a school knows of a possible need, the earlier various types of assistance can be trialled. The school will contact you about the needs they have identified for your child, and they will trial various support that may help your child’s learning. This helps to determine if an application can be made to NZQA for assessments, and for which SACs.
