  • Significant Physical Disability (e.g. muscle and tissue damage to hand making it difficult to write for extended periods; back pain which makes it difficult to sit for extended periods; dyspraxia)
  • Learning Disability (e.g. dyslexia which significantly affects reading and or spelling; illegible and slow hand writing, ADHD, or Autism).
  • Hearing Impairment
  • Vision Impairment
  • Refugee Status

Further information regarding eligibility and evidence requirements can be located from the TASC website: https://www.tasc.tas.gov.au/students/external_assessment/special-provisions/
