Call for responses to inquiry into improving educational outcomes for Western Australians

The Western Australian Education and Health Standing Committee is currently undertaking a parliamentary inquiry into improving educational outcomes for Western Australians of all ages.

There are five terms of reference that the Committee will inquire into, including one specifically addressing Fetal alcohol syndrome (and related disorders - FASD). This involves investigating prevalence, prevention, identification, funding, and treatment to improve education, social and economic outcomes.

Dr Brian Gordon from the Committee has requested the Russell Family Fetal Alcohol Disorders Association's (rffada) assistance in raising awareness about the inquiry. Anne Russell of rffada has asked supporters - including organisations and individuals - to make a submission or give evidence to the Committee regarding this inquiry. This can involve giving written information or an oral statement, which is used by the Committee to give a final report, often including recommendations.

The committee will report by 30 November 2012.
