Disability Standards for Education
A practical guide for individuals, families and communities
- Our rights: Who do the rights apply to, and what are they?
- Reasonable adjustments: Australian law requires schools to make reasonable adjustment for students with disability.
- What's fair?: Adjustments are designed to enable a student to learn on the same basis as others. However, ‘the same’ is not always ‘fair’.
- Working together: School staff should consult the student, or their family or other associate, before deciding on a reasonable adjustment.
